The Lakes at Thousand Oaks is a 7 1/2 acre, 50,000 square foot development next to the Civic Arts Plaza where you can relax and enjoy park-like landscaping, two lakes, fountains, waterfalls and a childrens' play area, while shopping at high-end stores and grabbing a bite. It opened in 2005.
Restaurants include Claim Jumper, P.F Changs, California Pizza Kitchen and Umami Burger.
There is a kids club that meets every Wednesday morning usually starting in the Spring through Fall. from mid-November through early January The Lakes hosts a very popular outdoor ice skating rink. The kids always enjoy it here because there is a lot of room to run around, run across the bridge, around the lake, etc.
