Mission Viejo was purchased by John Forster, a Mexican also known as “Don Juan”. During the Mexican-American War, Forster provided fresh horses to United States military forces which were used on the march of San Diego to retake Los Angeles.

Lake Mission Viejo, a 124 acre man made recreational lake offers fishing, boating, and swimming to local residents and visitors. It also offers playground, snack bars and restaurant and retail stores within walking distance.

19 lbs 12 oz largemouth bass, caught in 2006 by George Coniglio is considered the biggest bass legally caught in the state, possibly in the country that year and ranks 13th largest all-time nationwide.

Every summer, the residents can enjoy the series of ‘concerts at the lake’ and a spectacular 4th of July fireworks and festivities.
