City Description:
The city of Thousand Oaks, located in beautiful Ventura County, 12 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, is nestled against the Santa Monica Mountains and surrounded by 15,131 acres of natural publicly-owned open space. This open space contains 75 miles of trails for hiking, biking or just leisurely walking. Thousand Oaks, a family-oriented community of 129,349 (2015), is home to excellent schools, outstanding parks, and myriad shopping opportunities, including the largest auto mall in the nation, according to J.D. Power and Associates of Thousand Oaks.

Incorporated in 1964, Thousand Oaks is a master-planned community at its best. Because of thorough planning by the City’s past councils and leaders, the city’s services are those which other communities only dream about, such as a city-owned library, teen center, senior center, golf course, cultural center, quality infrastructure and natural open space.
