The Collection at RiverPark is a long-awaited dining and entertainment hub that has provided visitors and locals alike with a central location for all their shopping, family fun and foodie needs.
Opened on November 13, 2012, The Collection is a unique outdoor shopping center unlike any other in the county. Built with the environment in mind, the developers of The Collection took sustainability into account throughout the process. The developer’s goal was to gain the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Certificate for 80 percent of the center. This culminated in 10 percent of the materials used in the building coming from recycled local materials, 75 percent of waste being recycled, the planting of over 1,000 trees, energy and water efficient systems and other green initiatives.
The first stores to open in this new center were REI, Target, Ulta Beauty and a 16 screen Cinemark movie theater, however the area quickly grew to include dozens of retails stores, boutiques, a multitude of restaurants, Whole Foods and the county’s only open-air market called The Annex, a 16,000 square foot assortment of unique craft food, beverage and retail purveyors.
The Collection also provides the city of Oxnard with a robust selection of entertainment. Home to Color Me Mine paint your own pottery, salons, Century RiverPark 16 Theater-The Collection has become the go-to destination for date night and family activities. For adults over the age of eighteen, don’t miss a chance to see your favorite comedians at the new Levity Live! Oxnard’s only premier comedy club that has hosted comedians like George Lopez and celebrated actor Val Kimer. Have some laughs at a show while enjoying gourmet bar fare at the club’s restaurant, Copper Blues.
The fun doesn’t stop there though, during the holiday season The Collection turns into a merry holiday wonderland with light up decorations and a beautiful tree lighting display to kick off the season followed by a holiday concert, laser light show and fireworks!
