Take Some Time to Visit the Garden

Between the mall and the mountains and the freeway and the green way, lies one of the hidden gems of the Conejo Valley.  The Conejo Valley Botanic Garden is 33-acres of natural terrain encircled by the city of Thousand Oaks. From the the sweeping vistas at the peak of the Garden through fifteen unique, hillside specialty gardens, and onto the hiking trail along the riparian steam, the Conejo Valley Botanic Garden is a destination not to be missed.

The garden is open daily Sunrise to Sunset but closes during high winds, rain, muddy trails and July 4th.  No charge for admission. 

The adjacent Kids' Adventure Garden and plant sale is open Sundays only from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

Location:  400 W. Gainsborough Road, Thousand Oaks, California  91360.

During the rainy season, trails stay muddy for several days after a rain. The garden remains closed during those days.

 

You can take a virtual tour around this website and catch a glimpse    

of what the garden has to offer.

On September 18 our annual Volunteer of the Year party was held at the Kids’ Adventure Garden. Each year one or two volunteers are selected to receive the award. Jan Segal and Melvin Earley were recognized this year. Both Jan and Mel have volunteered in the garden for six years. Jan works faithfully on Thursdays in the propagation group. Mel works on Saturday mornings with the Saturday crew.

Delicious food was brought by the guests to share. Lots of visiting took place and new friends were made. It was an evening filled with cheer. Thank you to all our volunteers.
