About Castro Valley
Nestled in a quiet valley surrounded by oak-studded rolling hills, Castro Valley enjoys a rural atmosphere in the midst of urban Alameda County. With the San Leandro Hills extending along its northeastern edge, Castro Valley boasts such natural amenities as an extensively developed park system, a swimming lagoon, and an 18-hole golf course. Lake Chabot Regional Park offers boating, hiking, and an annual spring fishing derby.
This vibrant community of a little more than 60,000+ residents hosts an annual fall festival and car show, a chili cook-off, and a rodeo parade. Seasonal farmers' markets sell fresh produce from the nearby Central Valley. Youth activities include softball, baseball, soccer, and basketball leagues, as well as a track club. Historic Rowell Ranch Rodeo holds rodeo events and chooses a Rodeo Queen each year. Castro Valley’s Adobe Art Gallery displays group art exhibits, student exhibits, and children's and senior art.
Castro Valley homes range from 10-acre properties with plenty of room for horses to custom-built homes with views of the surrounding hills and three-bedroom, single-family homes close to schools and shopping.
