Conejo Valley Botanic Garden is located in Thousand Oaks, California, and consists of a peak with vista views along with fifteen hillside botanical gardens. It lies next to Conejo Valley Community Garden and immediately across the street from Tarantula Hill, the highest point in Thousand Oaks. It provides a teaching laboratory for what flora works and what does not work in the Conejo Valley.
The 33-acre (13.6 ha) site consists of a vast variety of endemic plants, water-conserving plants, oak trees, as well as 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 Sundays. Admission to the garden is free.
