RICHMOND

RICHMOND

With 32 miles of coastal shoreline, the city of Richmond is known for its panoramic, unobstructed views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin's Mount Tamalpais.

Home to some of the Bay Area's best seaside parks, beaches, fishing piers, biking and jogging trails, wildlife preserves and yacht harbors, Richmond is a haven for families looking for a higher quality of life, a lower cost of living, and the water's edge.

Located 16 miles northeast of San Francisco across the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, the city of Richmond is one of the most convenient commuter spots in the entire Bay Area. It has excellent public transportation, including BART, bus, train and ferry service to the surrounding cities. By freeway, San Francisco is within 35 minutes, Marin is 10 minutes away, and the city of Oakland is a 20-minute drive.

Richmond experienced a huge growth spurt in the years leading up to and spanning World War II. It was a major shipbuilding center and attracted thousands of defense workers from all over the country. There could have been a billboard saying "Rosie the Riveter" lives here. Richmond's real estate is comprised of mainly or mid- to late-20th century ranch-style homes, townhouses and condominiums. There are also rural areas, such as the hills surrounding Wildcat Canyon, where homeowners enjoy expansive acreage, complete with horses and access to wooded riding and hiking trails.

Unique places to check out in Richmond include the Richmond Art Center, one of the oldest art centers of the West Coast. It continues to be a wonderful community resource with great teachers, studios, and galleries. The Point Pinole Regional Shoreline is a great place to spot migratory birds, and Annie's Annuals Nursery is the source for California native flowers.

Those who enjoy indoor swimming can check out the completely refurbished Richmond Municipal Natatorium, also known as the Plunge. This treasured recreational venue is now equipped with LED lighting, solar panel-generated power, and an ultraviolet disinfectant system and saline chlorination that eliminates the stinging and odor of chlorine.

Just about every major suburban store and restaurant chain can be found along the many retail corridors of Richmond and at the expansive Hilltop Mall. Residents looking for a more urban experience can meander through the scenic waterfront village of downtown Point Richmond, popping into the endless independently-owned shops, galleries, grocery stores, cafes and restaurants.
