"Pretty Good Neighborhood"

The Glen Eden neighborhood at the far southwestern end of Hayward is relatively typical of Hayward, except for the fact that it has a newer section filled with Mediterranean style homes. This section, built in the 1990s, is nice with red-tiled roofs and adobe walls. the rest of Glen Eden is pretty much made up of older Ranch style homes, like most of Hayward.

The median home price in Glen Eden is $275K.

There are also a fair number of apartments here. You can rent a 1 bedroom for around $1250.

The schools here are slightly better than in much of Hayward as well. Mt. Eden High, for example has an API of 5 and so does Martin Luther King Jr Middle School.

As with most of the rest of Hayward, this is also a great spot for commuters, allowing you to get as far as SF or Palo Alto via public transportation in about an hour. You can get even farther by car, with San Jose and Dublin being within an hour’s reach as well.

There is, unfortunately, some crime in this neighborhood. There have been more than 2 dozen assaults here and more than 60 burglaries and robberies. Given how dense this area is this isn’t too bad but it is still a concern.

Overall this is an okay neighborhood.
  • Nice Newer Homes
  • Okay Schools

"Wonderful Suburb great place to live"

This was as my title suggests a wonderful suburb, Very typical of california many of the houses look similar if not the same in many of these neighborhoods with the red rooves I think look great. This was a very quiet section with a lot of kids that I think looked like a great place for families considering the amount of them that I saw. Figuring with all these kids there will be less quiet I wouldnt pick this for vacationers or for retirees but if you have kids and are moving to this area this is one neighborhood you should definitely check out.
