One of the fastest growing cities in Ventura County, Moorpark’s current population estimate is 36,375. Located in Ventura County, immediately to the west of Simi Valley, Moorpark was founded in 1900 and named after the Moorpark apricot which grew throughout the valley created by the Arroyo Simi river. Agriculture was the main source of the city’s revenue most of its existence. Moorpark began to grow in the late 1970s and early 1980s and became incorporated on July 1, 1983. To this day, the city sponsors an amazing community wide fireworks display commemorating its incorporation. Farmland gave way to housing developments and the city today is considered a bedroom community with its own school district consisting of 4 pre-schools, 5 elementary schools, 2 middle and one high school. Many residents and non-residents of the city enjoy taking classes at Moorpark College.
