Sendero’s Third Rec Center: The Outpost

One might be forgiven for assuming that Sendero lay entirely west of Antonio Parkway.  That’s where most of the construction has occurred and its the largest portion of Planning Area 1.  But east of Antonio on Sendero Way is the Lyon townhome development and a third recreational facility, called the Outpost.  Rancho Mission Viejo Company has published a map of the Outpost, and between the pool, cabanas, bartender, hammock garden, fire pits and bocce ball court — it gives the impression that future residents of the Lyon townhomes get to live in a resort.  We’ve shared Rancho Mission Viejo’s map below.  More information on the amenities at the Outpost are available from the Rancho Mission Viejo Blog here.
