Oak Park is a unique community that blends the best of small-town living with all the nearby amenities of suburban life including major shopping, employment, restaurants, and entertainment. Bordered by the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area and Rancho Simi Open Space, Oak Park sits at the base of Simi Peak. With elevations from 960 to 2,157 feet above sea level, the rugged hills create a dramatic backdrop visible from almost every vantage point.
Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley buyers are often drawn to this area because of its independent and top-rated school district. Oak Park Unified includes three elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school in addition to independent study. Newsweek Magazine listed Oak Park Unified as one of the best in the country and each of the schools has been named Blue Ribbon and Distinguished. These award-winning schools have a spirited and innovative faculty, involved parents, and high-achieving students.
In addition to the excellent school district, there are an abundance of recreational opportunities including seven parks, a community center, and proximity to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area with direct access to hiking trails. The mild climate encourages residents to utilize the miles of hiking and biking trails. Community gardens, summertime outdoor movies, the beach bus to Malibu, and concerts are typical of the amenities that establish Oak Park as a close-tied community with a small-town feel.
Dining and entertainment include a variety of retailers and restaurants, but, with nearby Agoura Hills, Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks, finding excellent restaurants and shopping is never a problem. With easy access to the 101 Freeway, Oak Park is perfect for commuters and there are a number of large employers nearby including Dole, Amgen, and Los Robles Hospital.
There is a wide choice of housing; from condominiums in the $300’s to executive homes priced over $1.5 million. The well-maintained homes, parks, and open space make this a community that will retain its beauty and attract discerning buyers for years to come.
