This is a nice stroll up and around a hill in the middle of the city. Access at Conejo Community Park. Most of the plants are labeled. There are several different areas with specific types of plants. Gorgeous view of the city at the top...More

This is little more than a public park with accent on walking trails, a baseball diamond and picnic areas. A true botanical garden it is not, especially when compared to UCLA’s, but it is altogether pleasant in its own limited way.

During winter almost all plants are dormant or dried. But the rare fruit orchards have some interesting fruits, such as white sapote. We had a nice afternoon taking a leisure walk there and an astonishing view over the Thousand Oaks.

It was a little chilly the day we visited. Most of the flowers were gone but the cacti were prevalent and the scenery from the top was spectacular.

Nice local botanical garden. If you are expecting Descanso or the Los Angeles arboretum you will be disappointed. This is instead a place to walk and contemplate while in the hustle and bustle of expanding Thousand Oaks.

33 acres. Many distinct styles and areas. Lovely walking paths with benches. Plants are clearly labeled with both scientific and common names for those who are interested.

Perhaps if I were more of a flower and plant guy, I'd rate it higher. I went mostly to hike with my son. Perhaps we are spoiled. Once on a real trail, our views were of apartments and the oaks mall. Again if you are...More

I was fortunate to celebrate my 50th Birthday here... and all my friends loved it. "How have we never been here before?", they said. It's a nice, family and dog friendly hike. Views of Thousand Oaks are wonderful.
