• Ashland District


    Ashland is situated in unincorporated Alameda County.  The community is located between the cities of San Leandro and Hayward.  It is roughly bounded by Hesperian Blvd to the West, I-580 to the East, 150th Ave to the North and Hampton Rd to the South, where it meets the Cherryland District.  

    Ashland Then

    Ashland gets its name from the Oregon ash trees that once proliferated in the area.  In the 1890’s people could ride an electric street car from Oakland to Hayward, passing through Ashland’s orchards and farms on their journey. By the 1930s, greenhouses and nurseries replaced most of the farms.  Ashland even had an automobile racetrack located where Bayfair Mall is now. Following World War II, the nurseries gradually gave way to housing developments for the District’s booming population.  

    Ashland Now

    Ashland is a vibrant community centered around the retail district on E. 14th Street.  The active hub of the district is the Ashland REACH Youth Center which serves youth from all over Alameda County, and plays host to a number of annual community events. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashland,_California

    Ashland Tomorrow

    Citizens Groups and Alameda County Planning Department are working hard together to update the Ashland Cherryland Business District Specific Plan, which will establish economic development policy for the foreseeable future. www.ashlandcherryland.org
