Trip Planner: USA / California / Thousand Oaks / Conejo Valley Botanic Garden
Conejo Valley Botanic Garden is located in Thousand Oaks, California, and consists of a peak with vista views along with 15 hillside botanical gardens. It provides a teaching laboratory for what flora works and what does not work in the Conejo Valley.See Conejo Valley Botanic Garden and all Thousand Oaks has to offer by arranging your trip with our Thousand Oaks road trip planning website.
The 33-acre (13.6 ha) site consists of a vast variety of endemic plants, water-conserving plants, oak trees, and indigenous wildlife. A children’s garden area was added in March 2003, known as Kids’ Adventure Garden. Although the garden itself keeps open most days, Kids’ Adventure Garden and nursery plant sales are only open on certain days. Admission to the garden is free.
Although its main entrance is found at 400 West Gainsborough Road, it is also accessible from Conejo Community Park, located at the intersection of Hendrix and Dover Avenues.
The property was first acquired in 1973, while the first parts of the botanical gardens began to emerge in 1976. It is operated by the nonprofit Conejo Valley Botanic Garden, Inc. It lies across the street from Tarantula Hill, the highest point in Thousand Oaks.

Big and lots of space to walk through and sit. Walk or drive to top hill and park. From there you can walk to your right (West) and go sit down and eat under umbrellas or continue on into Coy fish...

Nice place, quiet and well kept, saw lots of work being done to improve gardens with saplings of various plants. Easy to navigate trails and surrounding hills real nice. In the field next to it we saw a hawk hunting critters in the fields, going from tree to tree looking down, talons at the ready. Inside saw lots of small wildlife, fun.
Peaceful Thursday afternoon walking the garden. The park has a nice combination of sun & shade and the views are awesome. Definitely a place to check out the sunset. Will have to come back for that. I really enjoyed sitting in the bird habitat area. Saw butterflies, birds, hummingbirds, & rabbits. The only important issue is the restroom situation. The restroom at the parking lot by the Kid's Adventure Garden is only opened if the group picnic area is in use. Not happy that I had to walk to the community center at the adjacent park. I did see a porta potty inside the gardens but who wants to use that in 80 degree weather.
If you love seeing California Native Plants in a natural setting, the Conejo Valley Botanic Garden is the place to see them. Plus they have markers with the plant names. Be sure to bring water and a hat...It can be hot on the walking trails! The Botanic Gardens also has a kiddie playground and an area for picnics. Great garden in Thousand Oaks! BTW the entrance is off Gainsborough (in Thousand Oaks, just off Lynn Rd.)
I really like this walking trail and garden :-). Plenty of shade areas and benches plus a good assortment of plants. The kids garden is adorable. The only thing I would improve is the amount of signs on the trail. Beware of position oak.
What a fantastic find. Well kept trails, with plenty of rest benches and shade. One of top new favorite places. Great for a hike or family outing
