Valley View Park Master Plan

Valley View Park Masterplan

Share Your Vision for Valley View Park

Valley View will be a brand-new park in your community!  This 24-acre undeveloped open-space features noteworthy topography and sweeping views.  HARD is seeking direction from the community to guide future park development.  Your input will be incorporated into the Master Plan and will help shape outdoor recreation in Castro Valley. 

The Hayward Area Recreation and Park District (HARD) has completed an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for the proposed Valley View Project in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act.  The Initial Study prepared by HARD was undertaken for the purpose of deciding whether the proposed project may have a significant effect on the environment. On the basis of the Initial Study, HARD staff has concluded that the proposed project will not have a significant effect on the environment and, therefore, has prepared a Mitigated Negative Declaration. Comments will be accepted from April 24, 2023 to May 23, 2023.  We look forward to hearing your thoughts.
