The Lawn of Your Dreams in Hayward

During the late 1800s, orchards, cattle ranches, and farms flourished in the area that is now Hayward, which became known as "Heart of the Garden of Eden," because of its fertile soil and temperate climate. The land produced everything from chickens and cattle to flowers and produce in abundance. By 1950, Hayward had become known as the "Apricot City." 

About three decades ago, Hayward became a sister city to the city of Funabashi, Japan. This official affiliation was created to strengthen the international relationship between the cities, promote both commercial and cultural ties, and encourage educational opportunities through foreign exchange programs. 

Later, Hayward also became a sister city to Ghazni, Afghanistan, to strengthen educational and cultural ties. This has been done through instituting a pen pal program, setting up a school for women in Kabul, providing sports equipment for children, and providing equipment for a hospital in Ghazni. 

Nestled in the heart of downtown is a traditional Japanese garden that is the first of its kind to be located in the Bay Area. Known as the Hayward Japanese Gardens, this peaceful sanctuary includes 70 species of trees and plants, a bridge and pavilions, a Japanese teahouse, a koi pond, and a waterfall. 

Hayward also has a variety of artistic, cultural, and recreational opportunities. In addition to galleries, museums, and parks, the city has an award-winning Mural Program that was designed to reduce graffiti while revitalizing the city. This program was created through partnerships with business owners, artists, schools, and volunteers. 

While Hayward isn't home to any professional sports teams, it is the home of the East Bay FC Stompers amateur soccer team and the All Pro Wrestling training school.

Haywood has several large manufacturing companies and distribution centers in the city, and the area also has a strong agricultural economy that includes tomatoes, potatoes, apricots, cherries, and peaches. 

Major employers in the city include Alameda County Sheriff's Department, Manheim Auctions, Berkeley Farms, California State University East Bay, Chabot College, City of Hayward, Hayward Unified School District, Gillig, and Impax Laboratories.

Most of the buildings in Hayward were destroyed in the Hayward Earthquake of 1868, which rocked the Bay Area. This earthquake, with an estimated magnitude of 6.3 - 6.7, occurred along the Hayward fault line and caused serious damage to the area. Thirty people perished in this earthquake. 

The area was originally home to the Ohlone people before becoming part of a Spanish land grant. Then, during the California Gold Rush, a man named William Dutton Hayward settled in the area, building a grand hotel that stood until a fire destroyed it in 1916. 

The city grew steadily over the years, and as of 2018, Hayward currently has a population of 159,620 people and is the sixth-largest city within the Bay Area.
