We are thrilled to announce the return of our much-anticipated annual Mental Health Community Playdate, now in its 3rd year! This year, we are taking the experience to new heights by introducing the Zones of Wellness (ZOW) to the heart of Thousand Oaks and its surrounding communities. Following the resounding success at Oxnard College Park in 2023, we can't wait to bring this transformative event to Conejo Creek North Park.

Our commitment to fostering mental health and well-being in our community remains unwavering, and we are excited to provide a day filled with FREE activities for the entire family. This event serves as a unique opportunity to explore and embrace new avenues for enhancing your well-being.

  4. Silent Auction: Prepare for an out-of-this-world silent auction with items that will capture your imagination. Bid on exclusive experiences and items, all for a good cause.

  5. Special Star Wars Day Celebration: May the 4th be with you! In celebration of Star Wars Day, expect some special visitors from a galaxy far, far away. Join us for themed activities and surprises that will add an extra layer of fun to your day.
