Welcome to the official website of the Cherryland Community Association!
Cherryland, an unincorporated district of Alameda County, is located between the cities of San Leandro to the north and Hayward to the south. The Cherryland Community Association is composed of volunteer Cherryland residents that hold monthly meetings to discuss issues within the community, whose population was 14,728 at the 2010 census. The CCA reports these issues directly to and works in conjunction with the Alameda County Supervisor that governs the area. Currently the unincorporated community is governed by District 4 Supervisor is Nate Miley.
At one time, Cherryland was really covered in cherry trees, being comprised largely of the residential subdivision of the vast orchards (2,200 acres (8.9 km2)) of San Lorenzo pioneer William Meek (often called the “first farmer” of Alameda County), owned the entire area from A St., to Lewelling Blvd and from Mission Blvd to Meekland Ave., almost 3,000 acres in all.
The palatial Meek Mansion still stands on Hampton Road in the Northern part of Cherryland. The mansion is maintained by the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District, in conjunction with the Hayward Area Historical Society.
The area is policed by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office and the California Highway Patrol. Fire & EMT services are provided by the Alameda County Fire Department.
