Turtle Ridge Timeless and Modern Luxury
One of Irvine's newest villages, Turtle Ridge has the feeling of a hillside Tuscan retreat. Turtle Ridge is located around and atop some of the highest points within the city of Irvine, providing views of Newport Coast and the inland city lights. The 1,570-acre village borders the scenic Bommer Canyon, overlooks the established community of Turtle Rock and is conveniently adjacent to the San Joaquin/73 Toll Road. The character of the natural area surrounding Turtle Ridge was used as a guide to its architectural design, creating a village that feels closely connected to the land. Winding bike paths, walkways and nature trails give residents easy access to parks and open space.
Unlike most areas of Irvine, Turtle Ridge does not have a commercial shopping center, nor does it have any office or industrial buildings. It is almost exclusively residential, with a few exceptions. Turtle Ridge's borders are Bonita Canyon Dr. and Shady Canyon to the north, the 73 Freeway to the south, and Bommer Canyon to the east. It neighbors University Hills, Turtle Rock, and Newport Coast, which means it has close access to UCI, Fashion Island and the beach. Within the village is Las Lomas Community Park, a large municipal facility that includes soccer fields, baseball fields, a tot lot, basketball and tennis courts, and an indoor recreation center that can be rented for events. The community center also provides classrooms for courses offered by the city of Irvine.
