Why Do People Choose Oak Park CA?
Oak Park CA is a really special place to live outside of Los Angeles CA. It is nestled in the beautiful serene Santa Monica Mountain Range, about 45 minutes from the Westside of Los Angeles CA. The area comprises approximately 17,500 homes and pursuant to the original development plan with the County of Ventura the area is capped out on homes to be built with the remaining land being controlled by the parks and recreation department. This inability to build new homes really creates a very rare and exciting formula for housing demand here in Oak Park. The area has a very rich history of land ownership and development since the 1950's, with a large number of the homes being built in the 1960's and 1970's. Then came some later developments approximately 10 years ago in the Regency Hills section of Oak Park, which is the last approved development of homes in the area. Find a more in depth history here. A large number of people that have chosen Oak Park CA do so for the school district.

The area was served by the Simi Valley Unified School District until mid-1970 when the citizens formed their own Oak Park Unified School District comprising 3 elementary schools, 2 middle school and 1 high school.
