Newbury Park, California, is a small town nestled within the Conejo Valley. Additionally, most of Newbury Park is located the western city limits of Thousand Oaks, the second largest city by land mass in Ventura County, encompassing 55 square miles. This community is only 35 miles from Downtown Los Angeles, making it a part of the Greater Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. In addition to that, Malibu, the nearest coastal city, is only 22 miles away from Newbury Park, and is accessible by back roads or by crossing the Santa Monica Mountains via numerous hiking trails. Newbury Park and Thousand Oaks have both been ranked among the most peaceful and affluent communities in the country. In the 1950s, the family owned Janss Investment Company developed both Thousand Oaks and Newbury Park as a master-planned city, which included 2,000 single-family residences, 1,000 custom home lots, a 200-acre business district, as well as several community shopping centers. The town is named after Egbert Starr Newbury, who was one of the first purchasers of the former Rancho El Conejo, buying 2,200 acres in 1874. Newbury was a sheep farmer but also grew some acres or wheat. In those days, Newbury and his family were one of only five families who lived in the Conejo Valley. Although Newbury Park is much older than Thousand Oaks, much of Newbury Park ended up annexed as a part of Thousand Oaks.
