Angeles Area , approximately 35 miles (56 km) from Downtown Los
Angeles and is less than 15 mi (24 km) from the
Los Angeles city
neighborhood of Woodland Hills . It was named after the many oak trees
that grow in the area, and the city seal is adorned with an oak.
The city forms the populated core of the
Conejo Valley , which
includes Thousand Oaks proper, Newbury Park ,
Westlake Village ,
Agoura Hills , and
Oak Park . The

regional shopping center, a 200-acre (0.81 km2) industrial park and
several neighborhood shopping centers. The median home price is around
$669,500. Thousand Oaks was ranked the fourth-safest among cities

Majestic old oak tree in Thousand Oaks
The area was once occupied by the Chumash people, and 2000-year-old
cave drawings may still be seen at the Chumash Indian Museum , 3290
Lang Ranch Parkway, in the Lang Ranch section of the city. The Chumash
village was known as _Sap'wi_, which means "House of the Deer".
The area's recorded history dates to 1542 when Spanish explorer Juan
Rodriguez Cabrillo landed at Point Mugu and claimed the land for
Spain. It eventually became part of the 48,671 acres (196.96 km2)
Rancho El Conejo land grant by the Spanish government, thus becoming
the basis of the name
Conejo Valley (_conejo_ means "rabbit" in
Spanish, and there are many in the area). It served as grazing land
for vaqueros for the next fifty years.
In the late 19th century it was on the stagecoach route between Los
Angeles and Santa Barbara . The
Stagecoach Inn was built in 1876, and
is now a
California Historical Landmark and a popular museum.
The Janss family , developers of Southern
purchased 10,000 acres (40 km2) in the early 20th century. They
eventually created plans for a "total community" and the name remains
prominently featured in the city.
Jungleland USA was one of Southern
California 's first theme parks .
Wild animal shows entertained thousands in the 1940s and 1950s. Many
television and movie productions used the park's trained animals and
were filmed there, including _
Birth of a Nation _, _
Tarzan _, and _The
Adventures of Robin Hood _. Jungleland closed in May 1968, in part due
to competition from other amusement parks such as Knott\'s Berry Farm
Disneyland . The
Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Center today stands on
the site of the park.
The City of Thousand Oaks was incorporated on October 7, 1964, the
first incorporated city in the Conejo Valley. Some sources mistakenly
state that Thousand Oaks was incorporated on September 29, 1964, which
was the date that voters approved the incorporation and selected the
name. However, the incorporation only became official once the
certificates of election were filed with the
California Secretary of
State, and then the record of affidavit was filed with the Ventura
County Clerk. It is known for being a planned community , as the city
is one of few that have actually stayed with the master plan.
Increased development in Moorpark and Simi Valley in the late 1990s
and early 2000s caused the Moorpark Freeway (Highway 23) to become
heavily congested during both morning and afternoon rush hours. A
major widening project began in 2008 to alleviate most of this
congestion. Because of its desirable environment and location,
property values appreciated more than 250% in less than ten years,
primarily during the mid-1990s to early 2000s. The Newbury Park
area of Thousand Oaks
Newbury Park is located in the westernmost part of the city. This
unincorporated area was annexed by the city of Thousand Oaks through
votes by Newbury Park communities. The only communities that chose to
remain county areas are Casa Conejo , which was built from 1960 to
about 1965, and Lynn Ranch , an old neighborhood in the western
portion of the city. Thousand Oaks also annexed the parts of
Westlake Village (then simply known as "Westlake") that
were located in Ventura County, in two portions in 1968 and 1972.
Thousand Oaks is encouraging mixed-use retail and housing development
along the downtown portion of Thousand Oaks Boulevard. The city is
"built-out" within the confines of the
Conejo Valley and has adopted a
smart growth strategy as there is no room for the sprawling suburban
growth the city is known for.
Thousand Oaks is located at 34°11′22″N 118°52′30″W /
34.18944°N 118.87500°W / 34.18944; -118.87500 (34.189489,
-118.875053). It is situated in the
Conejo Valley .
According to the
United States Census Bureau , the city has a total
area of 55.2 square miles (143 km2). 55.0 square miles (142 km2) of it
is land and 0.15 square miles (0.39 km2) of it (0.27%) is water.
Although Thousand Oaks has a downtown area (focused around the Janss
Marketplace mall, The Oaks mall, and W. Thousand Oaks Blvd.), a large
portion of the city's inhabitants live in suburban communities a
distance from the commercial centers of the city. The large housing
districts near Lynn Road to the north and west are an example of this
sprawl , despite attempts by
Ventura County planners to reduce it.

DESTINATIONS FROM THOUSAND OAKS
Santa Monica Mountains _
The region experiences a hot-summer Mediterranean climate (_Csa_ in
Koeppen climate classification ) or dry-summer subtropical zone
climate, with hot, sunny, dry summers and mild winters with moderate
rainfall. Vegetation is typical of Mediterranean environments, with
chaparral and grasses on the hillsides and numerous western valley
oaks. Its elevation ranges from about 500 to 900 feet (excluding the
mountains and hills). The area has slightly cooler temperatures than
the surrounding areas, as it receives cooler air from the ocean
through various hill and mountain passes. On March 10 and 11, 2006,
snow fell on the peak of
Boney Mountain , the first snow to fall in
the area in about 20 years. Snow also fell on Boney Peak on December
17 and 18, 2008.

Elected officials are very aware of the anti-growth sentiment that is
common among the residents. All new development is described as
slow-growth in order to be accepted by the community. Ordinances
protect oak trees and the city prioritizes planting more in street
medians and other public land. More than 15,000 acres (61 km2) have
been preserved as open space , containing more than 75 miles (121 km)
of trails. Open space has been acquired through land dedications by
developers, purchase, and conservation easements . Donations of open
space have been made by
Bob Hope and
Joel McCrea . The largest donor
has been the Prudential Company which developed the community of
Westlake and eventually gave more than 3,000 acres (1,200 ha).

Thousand Oaks lies in the heart of the
Conejo Valley , with the city
Los Angeles to the east and the city of Ventura to the west. The
city is served by U.S. Route 101 (Ventura Freeway), as well as State
Route 23 . Highway 101 runs through the city and connects it with Los
Angeles and Ventura. CA Route 23 connects to the 101 near downtown
Thousand Oaks, runs north toward Moorpark and Simi Valley , and
essentially divides the city in two. Thousand Oaks is also served by
Thousand Oaks Transit (TOT), which provides public transportation in
the form of shuttles and buses. TOT buses provide service to Thousand
Oaks as well as some neighboring communities.
A regional transportation center provides bus and shuttle lines to
Los Angeles, Oxnard, Ventura, Moorpark, Simi Valley, and Santa Barbara
via the VISTA , Metro , and
LADOT Commuter Express bus lines. In
addition to being a transfer station from
Los Angeles and other nearby
cities, it also serves as the primary station for Thousand Oaks

2,600-foot (792-metre) airstrip. When the route of the new 101 Freeway
intersected a part of the original airfield it was closed. It served
general aviation, and featured an aerial sightseeing service. On May
5, 1960, Rancho Conejo Airport was opened as a replacement, northwest
Conejo Valley Airport. The new facility was considered an
'executive airport', with a paved and lighted 4,500-foot (1,372-metre)
runway. A flying school, restaurant and air charter service operated
there for several years. This airport appeared in _It\'s A Mad, Mad,
