Santa Rosa Valley is a small, rural community located in Ventura County, which encompasses 6.9 square miles-all land. Santa Rosa Valley has a strong "community feel" thanks to its many organized groups revolving around the equestrian lifestyle. Those near the area enjoy the Santa Rosa Pony Club, Santa Rosa Equestrian Park, and Santa Rosa Valley Riders, to name a few.
Santa Rosa Valley was initially developed as an exclusively agricultural area. In 2004, the Santa Rosa Valley Trails, Inc. was established. Their mission was to provide financing for the creation of a trail plan for Santa Rosa Valley and to assist homeowners in donating easements for trail riding purposes. Santa Rosa Valley is bordered by the cities of Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, and Moorpark. Wildwood Park with hundreds of acres of fascinating trails is just to the south, and to the north are the Las Posas Hills.
Residents of Santa Rosa enjoy beautiful ocean breezes and an ideal climate. The climate in Santa Rosa Valley is so ideal in fact, for avocado growing. There are five major avocado orchard companies in Santa Rosa, and of course, many private homeowners growing avocados for their own enjoyment.
