About Hayward, CA


The city of Hayward is located in Alameda County, California, a sub-region of the greater San Francisco Bay Area—more particularly, the East Bay. The name ‘Hayward’ evolved over time, previously recognized as Hayward’s, Hayward’s Station, and Haywood dating back to the mid-19th century. While the food canning industry once dominated this city’s economy, Hayward now thrives on manufacturing, retail and high-tech companies. The climate here is considered ‘Mediterranean’ and contains micro-climates—a feature common among cities and towns in the greater Bay Area.
