"Former Home of Your Muslim Bakery"

Paradise Park is a bit of a run down neighborhood with old World War II era homes with tiny front yards. Rents in the area are very reasonable with your average two bedroom going for about $1200. Even three bedroom homes tend to stay below $2000. Of course, most of the homes are from the World War II era, but some have been somewhat renovated.

You cannot mention Paradise Park, however, without mentioning Your Muslim Bakery that once resided at its southwestern corner. The bakery attracted the heat for more than its pastries, being implicated in the murder of reporter Chauncey Bailey and several past shady dealings. Many community leaders supported the bakery’s beneficial roles for the community, but the record has been a mixed bag at best. Now you will only find a boarded up building where the bakery once stood.

Although there is an assault or burglary reported in Paradise Park virtually every day, there has not been a homicide in the neighborhood in over three years.

Paradise Park is also home to a fair number of local eateries. Eastern City Café on San Pablo, for example, is an eclectic mix of Soul and Chinese food which is a little bit hit or miss. Café Tribu farther up San Pablo is a good coffee shop to hang out and have a pastry.

There are also a number of churches and schools in the area. Some of the schools are Golden Gate Elementary and the East Bay Conservation Corps Charter School
