San Pablo Reviews

San Pablo is a city in Contra Costa County, California, United States. The city of Richmond surrounds nearly the whole city. San Pablo is one big melting pot filled with many different cultures from around the world. One thing I would like to see change in my community is the unemployment rate, Most people who are in San Pablo and "homeless" is affected by not having many job options in the area. Finding a way to bring resources into our community to help it thrive is what I would like to see happen in the City Of San Pablo.

I like San Pablo because it is a very small city, but there are many things that I believe do need to change. There are some people who leave their trash cans out to have their own parking spot and sometimes it is hard for others to park their cars especially for the people who hog up all the parking space. Overall, the neighborhood I live in isn't so huge so that is what I like about it especially since we are kind of familiar with the friendly faces in the communtiy.
Not a lot of traffic on the streets, plenty of shopping and restaurants to go to, very quiet neighborhoods. Feels safe!
