9. First SoCal Theme Park

Jungleland was located at the site of the Civic Arts Plazs

Jungleland USA was the first amusement park established in SoCal, formerly located where Civic Arts Plaza stands today. Tourists and locals traveled far to get to here, where elephant-riding and lion shows were popular. First known as Goebel’s Lion Farm, it was renamed Jungleland in the mid 1920’s and remained open until 1969. The park closed due to heavy competition from other theme parks, mostly due to the rising popularity of Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm.

8. Gift From Bob Hope

Did you know Thousand Oaks residents were given a 360-acre natural preserve as a gift from Bob Hope? Located in Newbury Park, Hope Nature Preserve is beautiful and can be accessed from Lynn Oaks Park on 359 Capitan St. Situated in southeastern Newbury Park, the nature preserve sits between Hidden Valley to the south and Newbury Park to the north. The Los Robles Trail goes through the preserve and connects to various park lands throughout Conejo Valley.

7. SoCal’s Largest Library

Grant R. Brimhall Library is over 80,000 sq. ft. and offers nearly 400,000 books. Although not exactly a sought-after limo destination for our service, it’s by far the biggest library in Ventura County and arguably in all of SoCal. The American Radio Archive is something worth looking into, a library museum dedicated to the history of radio.

6. 4th Safest American City
