The Thousand Oaks Marketplace is also home to a new Drive Thru Starbucks, Walmart Neighborhood Market, Walgreens, Hampton Inn and Chase Bank.
Also slated for the center are Great Clips, Postal Annex, a Mexican restaurant (TBA), Chinese restaurant (TBA) and other tenants.
And for local history buffs...roughly 22 years ago, long before a Hampton Inn and Walmart graced this location, the Conejo Valley Ice Skating Center operated there until 1994 after 17 years in business*. The building was under lease from Home Depot that was located next door at the time. The operator of the Center built a new ice rink that opened in November 1994 - the Iceoplex Ice Skating Rink in Simi Valley.
The Conejo Valley used to have roller skating, ice skating and bowling, but no more.
- Conejo Valley Ice Skating Center closed in 1994
- The Conejo Valley Village Bowl closed in 1995
- The Roller Dome roller rink in Thousand Oaks closed in 2010
Although trails, parks, movie theaters, shopping and eating out seem to be the most popular activities around the Conejo Valley, there are indeed a variety of other things to do...check out this list of close to 50 activities in and around the Conejo Valley.
