La Vista Park

South Hayward is getting a new 50-acre hillside park.

The new La Vista Park will take shape north of the extension of Tennyson Road east of Mission Boulevard and is planned as an active and passive recreation destination for the entire city—with 180-degree-plus San Francisco Bay views from a ridge trail, sports fields and courts, an amphitheater, yoga lawn and much more

The park project will remake and reclaim for public use the old La Vista Quarry.  It was originally planned as part of a 179-home subdivision next to the quarry by the quarry owner, DeSilva Gates, of Dublin.  As part the 2005 city approval of the development, DeSilva Gates is required to contribute up to $2.14 million to the now estimated $23.5 million cost of La Vista Park—but only incrementally as each new home is sold.

The recreation district is committing voter-approved Measure F1 bond proceeds and the city is pledging park “in lieu” fees on several future real estate development projects.

La Vista Park is located north of Tennyson Road and east of Mission Boulevard. The park will feature:

  • 180-degree-plus San Francisco Bay views
  • hiking trails
  • sports fields and courts
  • an amphitheater
  • yoga lawn
  • and more

The City of Hayward will oversee the building of the park with the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District (HARD).
