Laguna Avenue and Laguna Court mark the location of what was a small reservoir located between Los Robles Avenue and Shauna Lane. Maps from 1941 and 1949 show Laguna Court as being named Neal, land owners in the 1920's when the Peninsular Railway had a stop at the corner of Laguna and Matadero avenues. Laguna Way is at the south end of Laguna Avenue, south of Los Robles Avenue. Laguna Oaks Place is a cul de sac just north of Iliama Way in Barron Park.
