Located in the heart of San Francisco’s East Bay directly adjacent to the Port of Oakland, San Leandro enjoys a well-earned reputation as one of the region’s busiest commercial hubs. Situated in the heart of the city, Old San Leandro lies just south of the hectic business district and west of Highway 14, a busy thoroughfare that bisects the city and provides the main north-south route through town. The ethnically diverse, family-oriented neighborhood contains a montage of well-maintained single-family ranch homes from the 1960s and ’70s, condominiums, old Tudor style buildings and Mission Revival-style homes.
A great year-round climate and casual atmosphere, San Leandro prides itself on its 23 community and neighborhood parks. Located on Estudillo Avenue and Sylvan Circle, Chabot Park offers 10 acres of great hiking and a woodland feel. With a large group picnic area, picnic tables, a playground and volleyball court, there’s something for everyone, and parking comes free to the public. Closer to downtown, you’ll find Memorial Park, a small park with a nice playground, picnic tables and barbecue grills.
