Welcome to Castro Valley
Castro Valley is the largest community in unincorporated Alameda County. Nestled in a confluence of canyons, Castro Valley remains a community that keeps a foot in its history while making the most of the present. Ranches in the canyons compliment the pastoral feel of its many neighborhoods and the community comes alive for its annual rodeo. This is also a get-out-and-do-it community, making the most of its many parks and trails, and also congregating as a community for special occasions in the newly redesigned downtown. Home to one of the area’s premier school districts, Castro Valley heavily supports education and the arts.
Castro Valley is one of the sites where Joseph Eichler built some of the 10,000 or so homes he built in the Bay Area. Castro Valley has a one-screen movie theater, the Chabot Cinema. The Castro Village complex on Castro Valley Boulevard is widely considered the commercial center of town. The Harry Rowell Rodeo Ranch is located in Castro Valley and is managed by the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District. Rodeos are held there regularly.
