Moorpark is a comfortable, safe, beautiful place to live. It is located in Ventura County, apparently the best-ranked places to live in the United States. Moorpark is a quiet, yet busy town. There are tennis courts, parks, shopping plazas, and homes affordable to middle-class and upper-class families. Arroyo Vista is the biggest park in Moorpark, holding recreational buildings, tennis courts, soccer fields, football fields, park equipment, bike paths, parking lots, and more. Moorpark has a historic downtown area called High Street, a sleepy place with lots of culture. There are many safe schools and hiking areas around, and despite it being so suburban, Moorpark is surrounded by all the big towns and cities like Thousand Oaks, Ventura, Ojai, and Hollywood. There are beaches and campsites and national parks short distances away. There's lots to do in and out of Moorpark!

Moorpark is a small town 45 minutes north of Los Angeles. It is located in Ventura County and is 30 minutes from the beach. Moorpark is scenically beautiful with rolling hills, lots of parks, and a small-town vibe. It mostly consists of families and old couples, the young adult population isn't very high. We have a college, one of the only colleges with a teaching zoo, that is highly ranked among community colleges in the nation. We also have multiple high-ranking public schools. There isn't a whole lot to do in town, however, there is plenty to do in the neighboring towns. Our community, for the most part, is very respectful and accepting of all people no matter the background.
Moorpark is great! Good food, stores, and schools. There are a ton of cute boutiques here. Mesa Verde is a great middle school, and Moorpark Highschool is amazing. Theatre is also largely supported here, both at the highschool and around town.
