The Oak View Park and Resource Center is a 4.27-acre space in the heart of Oak View with many services for all ages. There are numerous buildings that house a County Library and various non-profit tenants and a large enough green space that includes a variety of playground equipment, youth sports fields, and a park. We also have 2 multipurpose rooms that can hold 20- 250 people that is available for rent for fundraisers, performance, private parties, and group seminars. Attached to our auditorium is a beautifully remodeled community kitchen that can be rented for cooking classes catering and eve Today, the Oak View Park and Resource Center is a success story of "community Works!" Project
The Community of Oak View, through the effort of the Community Works!, the Oak View Civic Council, Ventura County Supervisors, Ventura Unified School District, Ojai Valley Library Friends and Foundation, State of California Park Grant, Ventura County Parks Department, and many other generous donations helped purchase and develop the property for public use.
The long-term plan was to create a non-profit resource center that would include the Oak View Library as the core tenant. We now have several family-based non-profits such as the Sunset School after school program, Child Development Resources, and Secure Beginnings. These buildings originally built in 1947 also have historic significance known as the "Ojai Section".
In keeping with our mission of preservation, it is our strong desire to emphasize the concept of sustainability in the restoration and beautification of the site.
Most importantly, Oak View, and surrounding communities, imposed a special tax assessment district which was voted on to fund and sustain the project through time
This property is owned by the County of Ventura and is currently managed by Barbara Kennedy Enterprises, Inc.
