Framed by the San Francisco Bay and the San Lorenzo Creek, the community of San Lorenzo is an attractive suburban area about 12 miles south of Oakland and roughly 24 miles from San Francisco.
Rent an apartment in San Lorenzo and you’ll have access to three airports: Oakland International Airport is less than five miles north, Hayward Executive Airport is about a mile south, and San Francisco International Airport is about 23 miles west.
Although located in a rather densely populated area, San Lorenzo contains some beautiful parks. The stunning Hayward Regional Shoreline is located along the bay. The park covers 1,811 acres and includes marshes, wetlands, and trails. Along with gorgeous bay views, visitors to the park enjoy bicycling, jogging, hiking, fishing, picnicking, wildlife viewing, and bird watching. Other parks include San Lorenzo Park, Mervin Morris Park, Kennedy Park and the public Sky West Golf Course, Cherryland Park, and Meek Park.
