• The issue of geographic equity in the Hayward Area Parks and Recreation District has been raised a number of times with the district board, which continues to claim that the district’s parks and programs are distributed fairly throughout the district.

    Rot! The district has historically favored Hayward, because it is politically stronger than the unincorporated area of the district, and Castro Valley. because of the snootiness factor (one director recently referred to it as “our beloved Castro Valley” — try substituting Ashland in that sentiment!).)
