If you live outside the Village, to enter the gated community, you must have your name on a list which the Club has submitted to Security or else have arranged with a Club member (and Village resident) to have your name called in to Security under the resident’s name. If you have done so, here are the driving directions to Clubhouse 3, Dining Room 2. You will need to give your name to the gate guard when you enter the Village.
Directions from the North
Take the 405 or 5 South to the El Toro exit. It’s basically where the 5 and the 405 meet – the “Y.” Take the El Toro Road exit. Stay in the second to the right hand lanes. You will actually be on Paseo de Valencia. Just go straight at the first traffic light at the end of the exit, which is Carlota. The second light is El Toro. Turn right. Follow “Continuation….” below.
Directions from the South
Take the 5 North. Take the El Toro Road exit. Once on the exit ramp, stay in the second to the left hand lane. At the stop sign turn left onto El Toro Road. Continue through three lights: Carlota, Laguna Hills Mall and Paseo de Valencia.
Continuation from both the North and the South
Get into the left lane. The next traffic light is Avenida Sevilla. Turn left into Gate 1 of Laguna Woods Village.
Say you’re here for the Democratic Club event, or, if a resident has called you in to gate clearance, give the gate guard the resident’s name and your own name. Continue straight through two stop signs. Shortly after the second stop sign and before the third one, you will see a large parking lot and clubhouse on your right. That is Clubhouse 3. Park wherever you want. Enter through any of the doors in the front. Dining Room 2 is to the left of the lobby. The address for Clubhouse 3 is: 23822 Avenida Sevilla, Laguna Woods 92637. The office phone number is: (949) 597-4289.
