Oak View is a census-designated place (CDP) in Ventura County, California, United States located in the western portion of the Ojai Valley situated between the towns of Casitas Springs (south) and Mira Monte (north). At the 2010 census, the population of Oak View was 4,066, down from 4,199 at the 2000 census, making it the third largest town in the Ojai Valley. The town is adjacent to the Ventura River and nearby Lake Casitas.
Although Oak View is located within the Ojai Valley, the town itself is located within the boundaries of the Ventura Unified School District. There is one school in Oak View, Arnez Elementary (aka, Sunset Elementary), which is located on the south western portion of the town, at 400 Sunset. Previously two schools served the town, however, Oak View Elementary School, located off of Santa Ana Boulevard, was closed by the district. A ballot initiative to obtain a parcel tax used to finance the long-term purchase of the school succeeded in keeping the school property from seeing a development that would have included 33 low-income houses packed tightly into the relatively small property. Instead, The Oak View Park and Resource Center is slowly but steadily growing there.
Public Libraries: Ventura County Library – 14 locations with three branches in the Ojai Valley: Oak View Library, Ojai Library, and Meiners Oaks Library.
