Think twice before moving here (Riverpark)! A few things to consider. . .

At first glance, Oxnard (Riverpark) may seem like a viable and affordable place to live and (in all honesty) it is more affordable than surrounding towns such as Camarillo, Newbury Park, Summerland and Santa Barbara, but with affordability comes some serious problems and some points to consider:Crime/Vandalism: Both are high here. . .even in the nicer and newer parts of Oxnard such as Riverpark which borders one of the worst crime areas in Oxnard. Bad people doing bad things bleed over in this area as it is certainly not a gated community. At first glance during the day, it seems nice, new, clean, with newer housing and pretty parks, etc. However, after spending some time living here and being the victim of crime in this area, I would certainly never live here again. Sadly, vandalism can be seen in the new parks as people just don't care and with poverty comes ignorance and with ignorance comes lack of pride in a community.Unfriendly: There is a high rental community which means a lot of people in and out. Neighbors generally keep to themselves. People will say hello if prompted, but don't expect to make long-term friends with your neighbors as nobody is really interested. As a lower income town, people generally work during the day and keep to themselves at night.Shopping/Nightlife: The Collection (adjacent shopping center) does offer decent shopping, dining and nightlife. It is rather convenient to have a Target nearby. Friday and Saturday nights/evenings, however, are chaotic as this is the one and only shopping and dining destination in Oxnard. Beware that The Collection does become the high school hangout spot around 5:00 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday nights for the 15-18 year-old crowd which just generally means to expect LARGE GROUPS of teenagers generally congregating around The Collection while security desperately tries to break up the loitering. There is the most concentrated cases of shoplifting during these times so don't be surprised to see high concentrations of police and people being escorted out of stores in handcuffs during these times. (I've seen this on each and every Friday and Saturday evening/night that I have been there).Filthy/Dirty: The town of Oxnard, in general, is pretty dirty. It is an older town with some newer developments sprinkled in. Grocery stores are generally run down and I go out of town to do grocery shopping as the options available here are not great and dingy. Poverty: As the statistics on this site state, Oxnard is an older city with a large population that is generally uneducated. With the lack of education in this town there seems to be poverty to go along with it. I think Riverpark is trying to change this by attracting young professionals and families, but don't be too surprised to find eight to nine people living in one house/condo despite rules against such. If you can overlook some of these points, then Riverpark may be for you. For me, though, Riverpark missed the mark and did not meet my standard of living.Would I live here again? NEVERIs it a good place to live for those with a high standard of living? NOIs there a good sense of community here? NOGood place for a family? NODo I wish someone would have informed me of the downfalls before moving here? YESWould I recommend a friend or family member live here? NO
