Turtle Rock is a hillside village in the south of Irvine. Located in the San Joaquin Hills, Turtle Rock has a higher percentage of large, single family detached homes than other neighborhoods in the city, distinguishing it as one of Irvine’s premier neighborhoods to live in. The homes are large; the views are great and there are parks aplenty. Turtle Rock even features it’s own walking trail system, which extends from Turtle Rock Community Park on the south end of the village to University High School on the north end. This trail wraps around the hills in both directions, connecting homes in different parts of the neighborhood with the parks and schools.
