Oak Park is situated in southeastern Ventura County. It is bordered on the west by North Ranch, Thousand Oaks and on the south by the LA cities of Agoura Hills and Westlake Village. It borders the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area to the east and north. Oak Park is an unincorporated community in Ventura County, California.
In the 1960’s, when Oak Park was developed in the Simi Hills a single road provided the only access to the community from Agoura Hills. As of the 2010 census, Oak Park had a population of 14,266.
Oak Park was formed from ranch land owned by Jim and Marian Jordan, stars of the radio show Fibber McGee and Molly. In the 1960’s the land was purchased by Metropolitan Development Corporation. The first homes were developed in the late 1960’s.
Simi Hills and the Oak Park area are part of a wildlife corridor that link the San Gabriel Mountains, (Los Padre National Forest), and Santa Susana Mountains to the Santa Monica Mountains. Open space and parks in Oak Park are managed by the Rancho Simi Recreation and Parks District. This includes the 10 parks and 10 hiking trails in Oak Park.
Water is provided by the Calleguas Municipal Water District through the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District. Oak Park sewer is collected and treated by the Triunfo County Sanitation District at the Tapia Water Reclamation Facility on Malibu Canyon Road in LA County. In 1994 a joint venture between Calleguas, Las Virgenes and the Triunfo built a pipeline and pump station to distribute reclaimed water for landscaping and golf course irrigation.
Initially, the students residing in Oak Park were served by the Simi Valley USD, with the nearest post-elementary school being about 20 miles away in Simi Valley. Since there was no plan for the Simi Valley USD to build post-elementary schools the residents decided to secede from the Simi Valley USD and formed Oak Park USD in June, 1977.
There are 3 elementary schools, Brookside Elementary, Oak Hills Elementary and Red Oak Elementary. Medea Creek is the Middle School. The high school is Oak Park High School. Additionally, there is Oak View Alternative High School, (for ages 16 and up).
