Possible Flying Sites in Westlage/Thousand Oaks/Oak Park Area

I am flying currently in Oak Park at the High School most of the time, but the field is so many times already reserved for other groups and I am desperately driving around to find another one.

It would be great if we could compile a list of possible and safe flying sites around Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks and Oak Park.

So I far I flew with my PZ T-28, L-39, F-35, F-15 and Super Cub at the following coordinates (copy and paste coordinates into Google Maps or Google Earth):

3410'58.99"N 11845'47.18"W Oak Park School
Problem: Field is always locked

3410'40.94"N 11845'58.24"W
Oak Park High School
Problem: Field is reserved for other sports
Good: Field is mostly empty on Sunday's. Great length for
long takeoff and landing

3410'37.60"N 11846'53.86"W Oak Park,
Problem: Field is very tiny. Hard landings due to many trees.

3411'6.03"N 11845'28.19"W Oak Park
Good: Long field, empty during day.
Problem: Tricky side winds
crashed 2 planes there, due to the wind.
Tricky landing, due to surrounding trees and houses.

I researched on the AMA website, what clubs are in my area and found these possible flying sites, but haven't test them yet:

N34.199305 W118.942805 Casa Conejo near the Target

N34.1209 W118.7509 Paramount Ranch - Old horse track

3410'18.74"N 11845'57.36"W Oak Park, field looks big, but lots of houses around.

maps.bing.com - Bird Eye View - is a good tool to see if the land is a "flat surface" :-)
