Eden Area Branch YMCA

951 Palisades Street
Hayward, CA 94542



The YMCA has been part of the Hayward and Castro Valley and surrounding communities for more than 50 years. We started out as the South County branch, first in a building on B Street and then in a converted house on Mission Street in Hayward. In 1979, our name changed to the Eden Area YMCA and we moved one more time to Palisade Street. Over the years, our commitment to serving the diverse children and families who make Hayward and Castro Valley their home hasn’t changed.

We offer a full range of services for tots, schoolchildren, teens and their parents. In addition to our Early Learning Center for infants and toddlers, we run three before and after-school sites, Summer Day Camps, Youth & Government, and youth sports programs.

With the help of our community partners, we will engage in ongoing assessment to define the needs of our members and our communities. We will continue to offer even more quality programs - open to all, regardless of the ability to pay. Achieving these goals will ensure that the YMCA meets the needs of the Eden Area Community.
