Resources for Hayward Park, CA

Hayward, California is located in Alameda County, in the southeastern region of the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s a closest neighboring city is Oakland. It’s a historic area, once known for its robust agriculture and canning industries. In fact, up until the mid-1980s, Hayward was the home of Hunt’s canned products. Local people would say that the air smelled like tomatoes for three months out of the year, while tomato canning production took place.

A lot of beautiful things belongs to Hayward Park. There are three golf courses, Stonebrae, which features 18 holes, cooking classes, tennis lessons, and hiking. Skywest features a pro shop, practice ranges, and a bar and grill. The shoreline is a 145 area marsh, along with five miles of graveled trails along the shoreline. You and your family can enjoy a host of outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, birdwatching, picnicking, and fishing–except in the marsh areas. 

Sulfur Creek Nature Center is a rehabilitative center for wildlife, which features an educational center for children, and wildlife camp. Families can picnic in designated picnicking areas. In the downtown area of Hayward’s, Japanese Gardens are located, and it’s the oldest tradition in California.
