2019 Conejo Recreation & Park District "Touch-a-Truck" Event on Saturday, June 15th


One of the most popular children's events in the area is the Annual Conejo Recreation & Park District's Touch-a-Truck event in Thousand Oaks on Saturday, June 15, 2019 (day before Father's Day) from 10am to 2pm.

Dozens and dozens of trucks and large vehicles of all shapes and sizes, all at Thousand Oaks Community Center, 2525 North Moorpark Road, near Thousand Oaks High School. This is a hugely popular event! Parking at the park fills up quickly, so be prepared to park at the T.O. High School parking lot south of the tennis courts and football field (corner of Moorpark Road and Avenida de Las Flores) and walk a block north up Moorpark Road.

See a garbage truck, Army truck, stretch limousine, tractor, excavator, dump truck, school bus, fire engine, ambulance, police van, monster truck, bulldozer, police cruiser, motorcycle, you name it. Too many to mention and your kids can check them out first-hand. They let your kids honk the horns, kick the tires, work the controls, blare the sirens, etc. In other words, bring aspirin!

NOTE: According to CRPD, there will NOT be a helicopter landing this year due to soccer field refurbishment.


There are numerous other activities, including kids construction play area, power wheel course, arts and crafts, wash-a-truck, jolly jumps, and a motorized train ride and refreshments for sale! Throughout the event you will find live truck demonstrations to consist of water balloons being dropped from the cherry picker, beach balls being unloaded from the dump truck, and even a helicopter landing!

Free admission! 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call the Conejo Recreation and Park District for more information at 805.381.2793 or visit www.crpd.org.
