CASTRO VALLEY CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW

Castro Valley is a Census-Designated Place (CDP) located in Alameda County, in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California.  It is the largest unincorporated community in Alameda County. The United States 2020 Census Data indicates that its population is 66,441. Castro Valley is 15 miles from Oakland, 16 miles from the city of Alameda, 26.5 miles from San Francisco and 46 miles from Vallejo, CA.

 

 

Long before the Spanish arrived in California, thousands of Ohlone Natives inhabited the Northern California area. The Ohlone and Costanoan terminology are names given to the indigenous tribes. The Ohlone is a collective of around 50 tribes with related languages.   Chochenyo is one of the Ohlone languages and is the indigenous language spoken in the inner east bay, including Castro Valley.

Castro Valley sits on part of a 28,000 acre Mexican Land Grant, identified as Rancho San Lorenzo, that was given to Don Guillermo Castro in 1840.  Castro Valley is named after Don Guillermo Castro, who was a prominent resident and rancher.

Castro Valley voted not to incorporate as a city in 1956 and in 2002.  It is one of the most populous unincorporated district in California.  Although, Castro Valley has an appointed seven member Advisory Council it is governed by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors.  Castro Valley’s civil services such as, policing, fire, and sanitary issues are provided by various county resources, including the Alameda County Sheriff and Fire Departments and the Castro Valley Sanitary District.

Castro Valley sits on 17.07 square miles and is bordered by the cities of San Leandro, Union City and Dublin.  It is near Crow Canyon, Cull Canyon and Palomares Canyon.  Much of the region was originally used as farming, grazing and chicken ranches. While sharing a common heritage of farming, and ranches, today the Castro Valley area is largely a suburban community whose residents commute throughout the greater bay area for employment and school.
