The City brings public art to the Moorpark community through the Art In Public Places program. This program requires certain development projects to either provide art work on site as a part of the project construction, or allows the developer to pay an in-lieu fee, which is then used by the City to develop and maintain public art projects throughout the community. To date the City has installed the following public art projects:
- The Thin Blue Line Sculpture at the Police Services Center
- Lithomosaics & Bronze Toad at Arroyo Vista Recreation Center
- Mammoth Bone Sculpture at Mammoth Highlands Park
- The “We Are One Family” sculpture at Ruben Castro Human Services Center
- Veterans’ Memorial, located at the corner of Flinn Avenue and Spring Road
- The monument to Victims and Heroes of 911, located at the corner of Tierra Rejada Road and Mountain Trail Street
Additionally, a number of private projects have incorporated public art as a required element of project construction including: stone sculptures and fountain at The Village At Moorpark, rock sculpture and fountain at the Freeway Business Center, fountains in Tuscany Square, bronze sculpture in Campus Plaza, sculpture and fountain in Moorpark Marketplace, fountain and sculpture at Moorpark Country Club, stone sculpture at Patriot Commerce Center, stone sculpture and fountain in the Mission Bell Plaza.
