Oxnard, CA

Year round the weather rarely peaks 80 but usually stays around 70 and cooler. Ocean winds come mostly from the southwest and keeps the air clean of smog and lingering heat. Santa Ana winds do, however, play a part in mid to late October and beginning of November which brings winds to a strong steady wind and elevates temperatures to 80 and higher.

Over development and poor city planning - 7/12/2013

Many folks go on here and rant about how the Mexicans ruined Oxnard, I can tell you as a non-Latino Oxnard Local my who has lived his whole life in this city, the problem lies in poor city planning. Yes, Oxnard was once segregated, with Generational Chicano gangs being a direct result from the alienation of this community by the racism of a bygone era but these gangsters do not exhist anymore. With the recent gang injunction many of these folks have long since disappeared. You may have kids that front gang culture, but many of them have no idea and do not carry the same ethics the cold hearted gangsters of the past believed in. As a matter of fact, most of the formerly segragated communities are occupied by newer Mexicans from the state of Oaxaca and speak the Mixteco dialect. These hard working people work 14+ hours a day 7 days a week and deserve the most respect from within our community for literally putting Vegetables on our table. The real culprit in lowering property values in this city is actually the nearby Naval Installation, which creates a high demand for rental units in the South Oxnard/Hueneme area. Not to mention most of the suburbs in this areas was developed and marketed towards transitioning service members between 1960 thru the seventies, many of whome retired and are renting out their property to sailors stationed here. So within these neighborhoods you have lower-income people that move in due to the low cost of rent [possible lowest in the county] and thats when you get the drug dealing and street hustling that people assume is Gangbanging, but are simply traits of any low income enclaves in the United States. There is simply a lack of opportunity for low income folks, and becuase the suburbs/apartments/condos in the area where built between the 60's and 70's when the baby boomer ideal was one car per house hold. The modern need of everyone in the household requiring a car ensures that every block has millions of parked cars lining the streets. The city of Oxnard should have noticed this trend, instead of building more suburbs to the North towards the 101 they should have focused on creating more sustainable buisness growth and better infrastructure in the south. And here in lies the problem, the city is more accomadating towards newer development in the North and newer middle-class inhabitants who commute to work thru the 101. The heart and core of this city lies in its agriculture and working-class immigrants. The youth I grew up with had a strong do-it-yourself ethic, with many dreaming of going off to college and comming back to Oxnards to make it a better place, thats the city I know and have faith in.

WORSE PLACE IN CALIFORNIA - 4/9/2013

Oxnard was a great place back in the 70's and early 80's. Then after that it just went Wayyyy downhill. An OVER abundance of mexincans mexicans mexicans. I'm not racist at all but dam. And not only that. There IS too much construction going on on the wrong things too. I remember them building the skate park. That is NOT a skate park over by Oxnard College. Santa Paula is a smaller place and has a much more interesting one. The racism with mexicans and blacks is so ignorant. The stealing, gangbabanging, people who pretend to be educated. Ventura isn't all that great either. You can surround it with pretty monuments and white people and pretend its the best tourist area in town. But what happens when they move there and find out there isn't a THING for kids to do out here, that isnt organized. The black people there are treated like shit. Every 2-3 out of 4 mexicans are illegal. And really, WHO CHOOSES FOR THE DALLAS COWBOYS TO PLAY IN CALIFORNIA????????? I NEVER EVER got that. Doesnt anybody recognize that one of the gangs there LIKES the dallas cowboys and has people in the city wearing these garments that the gangbabgers wear??? How stupid can you be? Thats because the relatives that are related to these bangers are getting in the government there. And making it ok. Dude, that is an out right stupid town. I bet if the blacks and asians were to run that city. It would be a lot better. Only thing I like about that place, is the burrittos...lol The schools are almost as worse as the gangsters out there. And if they are what street smarts is supposed to be. Good grief. So many people going to jail there that should have went to school. Ignorance is a terrible insult when you display that ignorance with no progression. I could go on and on and on and on about this town. Seriously, out there. They BARELY found out about craigslist a couple years ago. The welfare system there is a JOKE. Saving money for paticular people rather than anyone. The race BS there is way more than ridiculous. I was told that Oxnard, CA was the CUL DE SAC of California. I can't believe the posts I see of ppl that went there and had thier car broken into. Tweekers EVERYWHERE you go. You wouldnt believe the statements I hear about the school system. I remember Arnold Shwarzeneggar was supposed to visit there for a meeting at the pueneme police station. lol, he never showed up. DO NOT RAISE you kids there. Or Ventura. Unless you want them to learn to be ignorant, racist, and on drugs from lack of things to get involved in. I really don't mean to rip it apart like that. But too bad, it is what it is. And Dum is DUM.

Living in Oxnard - 8/5/2012

Oxnard is a coastal city with excellent sub tropical weather 75 degree average year around, but a high cost of living. It is a great place to retire. A beutiful place to visit and see all kinds of sights just 27 miles south of Santa Barbara.

Don't be a beach addict - use your brain! - 1/13/2011

I see many reviews about the nice beaches. People write about how they feel perfectly safe in the lovely beach areas and say many things that might entice unwary people to actually come here. Don't! The people writing those reviews are beach addicts, and have probably had their brains fried from too much sunshine. Yes, beach addicts will be very impressed by the nice beaches in Oxnard, and the fact that you can have a house right on the beach, and the fact that there are bars on the beach, yada yada yada. But Oxnard is not a very nice place. Yes, I too have heard it referred to as "Northern Mexico", "Tijuana", etc. And it is a quite apt description. Yes, there are gangs here - LOTS. One reviewer wrote something to the effect that you can't say people are criminals just because they are Mexican, and that is true. There are Mexicans here who do not engage in any violent activity. And there are also Mexicans here who do. Are Mexican gangs "not that bad"? They are not in the slightest bit "not that bad"! Black gangs on the east coast are "not that bad". They usually don't kill innocent people. Membership requirements for joining a mexican gang range anywhere from just getting "jumped in" to killing a rival gang member to murdering an innocent civilian. Make no mistake, they are murder organizations, and should be avoided as best you can. Use your brain. Yes, there are "nice areas" in Oxnard. But does anyone really buy that people who live in the bad areas can't walk (or drive) 5 blocks to get to the nice areas? Of course they can. Do vatos like the beach? Of course they do, and they also hate the people who live on or near the beach. So, if you're a beach addict who just loves the Oxnard beaches, by all means, buy a house here. Come for the nice beaches, and stay for the Juarez style action! Should we embrace other cultures, as one poster said? It depends on the culture! Use your brain and keep your butt safe. California has nice beaches all along its coast. The coast of California is something like 1500 miles long, with many cities running all along the length of it, and -believe it or not- most of those cities don't have THAT much crime. Oxnard DOES. So, if you happen to find yourself in Oxnard and start to fall in love with the NICE beaches... take a picture. It's not worth living here, or even staying here more than a few hours. The worst bad neighborhoods are the ones that look like nice ones. I've walked through ghettos in New York and felt A LOT safer than I do living in the "nice part" of Oxnard. And yes, the city still has those horrible potholes. Take my word for it. I'm leaving Oxnard the MOMENT I get the means to do it. BTW, my comments about Oxnard do not apply to the rest of Ventura county AT ALL! The city of Ventura has even more beautiful beaches and way less crime! Thousand Oaks is a gorgeous city with hardly any crime and a great deal better access to L.A. than Oxnard, if you need it! Ojai has GREAT hiking and beautiful cold creeks and sulphur hot springs that the locals say may cure your various ailments, and a lot of famous movie stars have ranches there and the oranges that grow in the groves at Meditation Mountain are some of the most delicious you will ever taste. Ventura county is beautiful! Oxnard, however, sucks. Please stay away from Oxnard. (Unless you are a beach addict, of course).

Oxnard Remains One of the Safest Cities. - 2/22/2010

During the early 2000, Oxnard has experience a significant decrease in crime, such as violent crime, assults, rapes, and burgleries. Most recently, the Oxnard Police Department, and the District Attorney has imposed a court order gang injunction that covers six square miles of central Oxnard and another is being considered for south Oxnard. Since these injunctions were implemented, gangs are prohibit from being out on the streets after 10 p.m. If gangs are caught violating their curfew, they are immediately arrested by authorities. Those who say: stay away from Oxnard, needs to do their research before critizing Oxnard as an unsafe city to live, work, or visit. Yes, Oxnard has its problems with crime like any other American city, and to accuse Hispanics as the only ones who are committing crimes is false! Again, do your research people!

The truth about Oxnard - 1/1/2010

I have lived in this area since 1990 and its really a shame to see the city let itself go. The perfect climate, great access to the bigger city if you need it and escape to the beach the nearby Channel Islands and mountains. I am perplexed at Oxnard's lack of initiative to clean up the horrendous crime rate and to make it a safe place to live. Too much emphasis on writing fix it tickets for no front license plates rather than tackling the real crimes such as gang bangers and murder. The whole area is infected by gang scum that going to the Pacific View Mall in Ventura requires customers to wear a bullet proof vest and carry a firearm for safety. Constant stabbings, and it really gets worse near Port Hueneme area with murders. It is a shame because there are many great stores and nice areas, but if you're looking to move to Oxnard, stick with the areas closest to the river and beach. Anywhere else is really putting you and your family's life at risk. BTW, the roads will do a number on your car... new car in Oxnard? Not for long!! City does nothing to alleviate its pothole issues and the county is even worse.

Not safe - 3/28/2009

This place is called North Mexico.(My local friend said) About 80%? of people in this area are Mexican. School, education is really bad. Awful!! Lots mexican gangs living in oxnard. Local person told me "you shouldon't buy house because this whole town is ghetto." Lots of high price housing area are surrounded by ghetto. Winter is freezing cold to me even evening in summer. No job if you can not speak spanish. I hate this place.

Oxnard Beaches are Southern California's Best Kept - 10/7/2008

Crime in Oxnard is mostly kept to "certain" areas. Most of the outer lying parts of Oxnard are new and beautiful, and the beach areas are superb!! I don't feel unsafe living here at the beach at all! It feels like a small community where everyone watches out for each other. Everyone is out riding their bikes, skateboarding, walking, surfing, sailing, and playing in the sand!

Climate - 10/4/2008

As a resident of Oxnard for near 20 years and originally from Boston I find the climate here better than anywhere else. Temperatures do not fluctuate more than 25 degrees between summer and winter though with the amount of daylight changing you still feel a seasonal shift. You are within 1 hr of skiing in the mountains or sailing in the ocean. Living at the beach in Oxnard is like going home to paradise at the end of every work day. People wonder why I resist leaving on the weekends or going on frequent vacations. Every day living in Oxnard is like being on vacation.

Great Weather - 9/20/2008

I lived in Santa Barbara for 39 years and loved the weather...but I couldn't afford to buy a home there. We began looking in the Ventura/Oxnard area, and we landed in a new community in Oxnard called 'Riverpark'. The weather is identical to SB...average temp is 72 degrees. We're close to the ocean, so we get the benefit of the ocean breeze. It's kind of boring looking at the weather.com page, as the temp varies about 5 degrees one way or another. Nights are cool. Afternoons can be a little windy/breezy. Overall, we love it.

Crime from my point of view - 4/21/2008

Oxnard is a nice place to live but just like any other it has it's problems. Crime in Oxnard is largely related to drugs and/or gangs. Certain neighborhoods run rampant with both and if you stay clear of those areas your experience in the city will be pleasurable. The local law enforcement agency in Oxnard is a smaller version of LAPD. They don't tolerate mcuh and they aggressively enforce the laws of the land. You can find the better areas near the coast. When visitng Oxnard relax and enjoy the mild climate.
