I’ve lived in this county almost my whole life and never knew the Thousand Oaks Botanic Gardens existed (:O) so here is a long due post.
How to Find The Botanical Gardens
The entrance to the gardens is nothing to write home about. In fact, the gardens themselves are very simple and little maintenance seems to have been done to either the plants or the signage. It’s a good thing I had printed the map from their website or we would have been quite lost.

Well Labeled with Clear Pathways
The pathways are cleared though so no fear of getting lost unless you wander too far off the trail. Also, the specific gardens, i.e. the Butterfly Garden and Bird Habitat, are clearly labeled once you find them (it’s just a matter of finding the gardens, lol).
Hours of the Gardens
There appears to be a children’s park but parents are warned that it is only open Sundays from 11am-3pm and that the Botanical Gardens in general closes every day at 5 pm. There is plenty of signage warning you to be out before they lock the gates at 5pm.
All in all, there is a nice nature trail that gives you great panoramic views of Thousand Oaks and some lovely little gardens sprinkled throughout.
