Simultaneously one of California´s newest and oldest cities, Laguna Woods is a senior citizen´s mecca. More than 90 percent of the city´s four square miles is located within the over-55 gated community Laguna Woods Village (formerly Leisure World). Three other senior residential communities compose the rest of the city.

Development of Leisure World began in the 1960s on a 2,000-acre portion of what was previously known as Moulton Ranch. The community was intended to offer a haven for active senior citizens in a secure setting. In 1996 the community united against proposed development of a commercial airport along its border. A consultant urged the community to incorporate as a city. The City of Laguna Woods incorporated three years later.
