Grass Valley Oakland is a quiet & friendly little neighborhood tucked between Skyline Boulevard and the Oakland Zoo, off Golf Links Rd or 106th. You are off the beaten tracks where you can hear the birds sing, and OH, so-close to nature, but just a short jaunt down the hill puts you back in the bustle & close to great amenities in every direction. You can practically reach out and touch Chabot Park with its wealth of outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, horse back riding, camping, & more. The park access point Clyde Woolridge Staging Area is right around the corner at Skyline & Grass Valley Rd, and just a few short blocks from 4949 Stacy within Grass Valley is a trail head to the Goldenrod Trail that leads directly to Lake Chabot! For horse lovers, there are several nearby equestrian centers that offer horse boarding, including Skyline Ranch Equestrian Center, Chabot Equestrian Center, & more. Chabot Golf Course is close by, along with Knowland Park, & the Oakland Zoo. The neighborhood shows pride of ownership, has an active Nextdoor community & Oakland Fire station #28 is conveniently located nearby. The local elementary school two blocks over completes the community feeling. Cal State Hayward campus is a mere 11 miles away.
Just a few miles down the hill, you find yourself in the charm of old town San Leandro, with its up & coming restaurants, coffee shops, Wednesday night Farmer’s Market, BART station, arts programs, & local theater companies. The 580 corridor provides a convenient commute in every direction, making this area perfect for the household with commuters headed in opposite directions. Grass Valley is a nice midway point between Silicon Valley and Oakland/SF.
