For the first time ever, the Conejo Recreation and Park District will open up the natural, hilly meadows of Wildwood Park to local runners for the inaugural Wildwood Trail Races.
Scott Engel, recreation supervisor with CRPD, said the district hopes to draw in at least 400 participants with its first organized running event.
Furthering its goal of establishing a complete ring of open space around the city, the City of Thousand Oaks will spend $197,000 to acquire seven properties spanning 4 acres just south of the Civic Arts Plaza.
The parcels, located south of Willow Lane between Fairview Road and Conejo Ridge Road, are adjacent to 60 acres of open space controlled by the Conejo Open Space Conservation Agency, a joint powers agency comprised of the Conejo Recreation and Park District and the City of Thousand Oaks. COSCA has long identified the parcels as a priority for preservation.
