The City of Laguna Niguel began building homes in the late 1960s and is known for its upscale home subdivisions, award-winning public schools, low crime, clean air, and close proximity to the shoreline. Located in the San Joaquin Hills, its name comes from the Spanish word for “lagoon” and the name, “Nigueli”, of a Juaneno Village. Popular parks include the Laguna Niguel Skate Park, the Badlands Park, Aliso and Wood Community Park, and the Laguna Niguel Regional Park.
