Castro Valley Real Estate

Distinguished as one of Northern California’s largest unincorporated communities, Castro Valley was originally a large collection of cattle and poultry ranches. The rural influence of the past still flavors the area, and many residents are involved in equestrian activities – from riding and showing horses to operating horse-breeding ranches. Within the heart of town, small shops dot the quiet neighborhoods, underlined by the primary business districts concentrated along Castro Valley Boulevard and Redwood Road. Many newcomers are drawn to Castro Valley for its blend of urban amenities and wonderful recreational amenities. Cull Canyon and Don Castro Regional Recreation Areas provide swimming lagoons, picnic areas, fishing and hiking or riding trails. The premier Redwood Regional Park offers 1,500 acres of redwood beauty, while Lake Chabot Regional Park invites water sports and accommodates camping.
