San Pablo Reviews
Affordable, friendly, diverse, and you can find houses with panoramic bay views in the hills east of 80. Great hiking in Alvarado Park & Wildcat Cyn, parks w tennis courts and kid structures. You can own vs rent because it's way less to buy than in El Cerrito or Richmond hills and the City of San Pablo is well funded so services like fire and police are superior and respond fast. Del Norte Bart gets you to SF in 35 min and you have a seat in the morning! The new ferry is close by as well.
Being a 17 year old girl living in San Pablo, I would like to say that I enjoy where I live because of the diverse community and everyone being so close with one another. It's a pretty good city to grow up in. Most things can be so convenient like going to community college, getting a small summer job or even just going to a college football game with friends. Simple things like this is what makes the city seem good enough to grow up in even if my examples seem so minor they give the city a bit of hope.
I have lived in san Pablo my whole 17 years of life and so far it has been good to me. I attended Dover Elementary school and for middle school I left to Richmond Charter Academy which was a very good school as well. Currently I am in my senior year of high school. I live with my parents and my two younger siblings, and I will be the first child to go to college. I have never moved around from city to city so I could definitely say San Pablo will always be the city I come back too all the time.
