There is so much to explore around Ventura!   Ventura is the gateway to the Channel Islands National Park – known as the “North America’s Galapagos”!  Just 30 minutes away from destinations like Ojai and Santa Barbara!  Day trips to Los Angeles and all of the family friendly attractions such as Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood, and Beverly Hills!  A quick trip up/down the coast to so many coastal cities – such as Malibu, Santa Monica, or Venice Beach to the South.   Driveable weekend get-aways include 7 national parks, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, San Diego, Mammoth, or even San Francisco! 

Parks

The City of Ventura is home to more than 800 acres of parkland.  There are 32 parks to choose from, each with its own scenic beauty, character, and amenities - ranging from rentable, covered picnic areas to sports fields to barbeque pits.  Hike a trail in the woodsy Arroyo Verde Park, play tennis or baseball at Camino Real Park among the monarch butterflies, or take your little ones to one of several oceanside playgrounds!   Our parks offer something for everyone!

Whether you're 2 or 102, Ventura offers a myriad of recreational opportunities for every interest imaginable. The City of Ventura offers more than 200 classes every season. Last year, almost 17,000 residents participated in a City Parks and Recreation class offering.
