The Hayward Area Recreation & Park District is overseen by an elected five-member Board of Directors, serving the City of Hayward and the unincorporated Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Ashland, Cherryland, and Fairview districts.
The Board determines the District's policies, rules, regulations, and ordinances. It rules on all matters relative to fiscal expenditures, acquisitions, development, improvement, and maintenance of park and recreation facilities and programs.
They are committed to preserving open space and enhancing the quality of life of the community we serve through parks, recreation programs, learning, and fun!
Our regularly scheduled Board Meetings are held the first and third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. (unless otherwise posted) at the District Administration Office, 1099 E Street, Hayward, CA, and are posted in our Calendar of Events. The public is invited to attend meetings and participate in the decision-making process. You can find the complete list of scheduled Board Meetings for 2023 in Resolution R-2223-37.

Public Comments on Items Not Appearing on the Agenda
Any citizen desiring to speak on a matter not appearing on this agenda may do so under public comments at such time as the president of the board requests remarks from the audience. Those comments, by state law, are limited to items of interest to the public that are within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Board of Directors. You should be aware that the law prohibits the board from discussing or taking action at this meeting on items not on the agenda except for very limited situations.
In order to provide an opportunity for all members of the public who wish to address the board, a time allocation of 5 minutes for each individual speaker and 30 minutes total time for public testimony on a particular item has been established by the Board of Directors.
