Thousand Oaks is a city in southeastern Ventura County, California, in the United States. It was named after the many oak trees that grace the area, and the city seal is adorned with an oak.

The city forms the most populated part of a regional area called the Conejo Valley, which includes Thousand Oaks proper, Newbury Park, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, and Oak Park. The Los Angeles County/Ventura County line crosses at the western city limits of Westlake Village. The population was 126,683 at the 2010 census, up from 117,005 at the 2000 census.

Thousand Oaks and Newbury Park were part of a master planned city, created by the Janss Investment Company in the mid-1950s. It included about 1,000 custom home lots, 2,000 single-family residences, a regional shopping center, 200 acre (0.8 km2) industrial park and several neighborhood shopping centers. The median home price is around $673,000. It is located in the northwestern part of the Greater Los Angeles Area. The city was in 2006 named one of Money magazine's Best Places to Live.
