What Makes Castro Valley So Great?
Castro Valley has a small town feel, along with the natural beauty and outdoor lifestyle options of a foothill community. For those with sophisticated or adventurous tastes moving to Castro Valley, you can enjoy a variety of dining options and sample the local wineries. At the single-screen, 50’s era Chabot Theatre, complete with its vintage marquee, you can take in a modern movie in a nostalgic atmosphere. Beyond all these attributes, Castro Valley is close enough to the city for East Bay commuters who work in SF or Oakland, taking BART or traveling on 880, 580 and/or 92. With many highly rated schools in the area, Castro Valley is also a great place for kids and families.

Hiking, Biking and More in the East Bay
The scenic, rural Castro Valley area offers your choice of outdoor activities. Whether you’re moving from across the country or from a nearby town, your local recreation options will include hiking, biking, camping, horseback riding and golfing (including mini-golf and putt-putt for the young and young-at-heart). You can also go boating and fishing on Lake Chabot, the man-made lake that covers more than 300 acres. The nearby creeks, canyons, trails and parks offer a beautiful setting for your favorite kind of fresh-air fun. There is even a rodeo ranch for cowboys, cowgirls and fans.
Castro Valley History, Architecture and Lore
Castro Valley’s scenic location tempts residents to spend quality time outside, but if you’re making a home here, you’ll find many options for your indoor life in local housing styles. Once home to a number of chicken farms, Castro Valley’s population grew when architect Joseph Eichler attracted families to the area by designing the Greenridge homes. Defying the idea of a traditional housing development, the houses take advantage of the lovely landscape in and around the community. The 60s homes were designed with many windows (or glass walls), exposed beams and atriums, many with expansive views of green countryside–as well as city lights of the East Bay. Now, the area features many styles of homes, from cozy bungalows and country farmhouses to grand estates. You’ll also find condos, townhouses and land for new home construction when preparing to move to Castro Valley.
