San Lorenzo Creekway Master Plan
Building Equitable Active Transportation in Alameda County
Once completed, the San Lorenzo Creekway will be a multi-use path for walking and biking, connecting communities in San Leandro, San Lorenzo, Ashland, Cherryland, Hayward, and Castro Valley! Thanks to your participation in the San Lorenzo Creekway Master Plan process, the plan was adopted by the HARD board in July of 2021. Check out the final Master Plan document online:
In 2022, our planning work continues, in order to prepare an Active Transportation grant application for Cycle 6 of the grant program due June 15, 2022. Please join us in new community engagement events planned for this spring both in person and online.
HARD and ACFCD invite you to stay engaged and share your thoughts on the San Lorenzo Creekway!

Meet our two high school student Youth Ambassadors from 2020: Lorenzo Gonzalez & Diana Venegas!
Meet Lorenzo Gonzalez:
"My name is Lorenzo Gonzalez and I am currently a senior at Arroyo High School. I am a student athlete and am on my third year serving in the Youth Advisory Commission for the city of San Leandro. I have a passion to continue doing well as a student while playing sports and being involved in extra activities. My goal is to attend a four year college that will focus on my studies to become a mechanical engineer. I am very excited to be a part of the San Lorenzo Creekway project and sharing my ideas to making this a positive impact to the community.
Meet Diana Venegas:
"Hello my name is Diana Venegas and I am eighteen years old. I’m heading to Humboldt State in the fall. I love volunteering, plants, photography, painting, and embroidery. I am a major nature fan. And, I am so excited to be able to be a Youth Ambassador for this project."
