Gates Canyon Park / Brandon's Village - Calabasas

Brandon's VillageThe 7 acre Gates Canyon Park in Calabasas was acquired in 1993 and includes picnic areas with barbeques, fitness course, children's play area, basketball court, tennis courts, and open grass area.  The park is north of the 101 freeway and east of Las Virgenes, about 12 miles from Thousand Oaks city central.

Designed by Shane’s Inspiration, a non-profit organization that designs and builds universally accessible playgrounds, and opened in October 2006, Brandon’s Village features playground equipment is over 70% independently playable for children with disabilities and also provides meaningful and stimulating play opportunities for able-bodied children.

Gates Canyon Park / Brandon's Village is located at 25801 Thousand Oaks Boulevard, Calabasas. Call 818.880.6461 or visit www.cityofcalabasas.com/vtour/parks-recreation/gates-canyon.html for more information.

We visited the park on Friday, January 1, 2010 and the kids had a blast.  There is a HUGE play area for 5 to 12 year olds with many unique features I haven't seen in other parks, such as a unique roller-driven slide and a large "swaying" ship that we spent about half an hour on. There is a separate play area for younger children.  My 4 year old was completely entranced with the play area and didn't want to leave.  The video below doesn't quite do the place justice but will give you some feel for how cool Brandon's Village is.  This is a "must visit" place in my opinion if you live in the area with kids!
