Community Center Park in Camarillo

Community Center Park in Camarillo is home to the administrative offices of the Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District, Community Center, Senior Center, classrooms and quite a nice park that is host to numerous community activities year-round, like the Easter egg hunt, Christmas parade, Earth Day, Halloween Carnival, etc!

The park is nearly 13 acres and plenty of parking. And, the playground has some REALLY nice, newer equipment! Check it out!

In addition, the park has some really nice, new exercise equipment adjacent to the playground area on the west side of the park! I've tried (in late March 2013) the equipment and it is some of the nicest "free" outdoor equpment I've been on! Let's just hope they are able to keep the equipment in such nice shape!

Community Center Park is located at 1605 E. Burnley Street in Camarillo. For more information, visit or call 805.482.1996.
