Living in the Richmond Hills (Richmond, CA)
Re: Moving to a cheaper area now that kids are gone
The Richmond Hills neighborhood of Richmond is quite nice and property taxes are low. The neighborhood backs up against Wildcat Canyon Park (northern extension of Tilden) and Berkeley is 15 minutes away along the Arlington. -Nearby in El Cerrito Hills
Re: Cheaper but "safe enough" neighborhoods
I grew up in the ''Richmond Hills.'' On Bernhard Ave, which borders Wild Cat Canyon. That particular area is very nice, but with many of these places, all of Richmond included, the schools are horendous. You may end up paying more for private school that living somewhere where public schools are good enough. Personally I like that area and El Sobrante/Pinole better than San Leandro, but I don't know what your commute looks like. Good luck! Richmond bred mom
Moving to the Richmond Hills near El Sobrante
After almost a year of being outbid for homes in the El Cerrito/
Albany area, my husband and I recently purchased a home in the
Richmond Hills (off of the El Portal exit, a few yards from the
El Sobrante boarder). While the home is just beautiful (and
about $175K less than much smaller homes in El Cerrito) and the
neighborhood is quite lovely, I don't really know that much
about this area of Richmond. I've already consulted the website
and am hoping to learn more. We've done the police check (crime
is relatively low) and our child is an infant so we're not
worried about schools yet. Can anyone who lives in this area
tell me a little bit more: why you love it, things you might
dislike or that I should be wary of. Also, any hidden treasures
(stores, restaurants, parks) in or around this area that I
should know about. Thank you so much.

san pablo dam road also has lots of restaurants most of which we have yet to try, but we like the mexican/salvadoran place on san pablo dam road - I forget the name.
there are also some great picnic areas right on san pablo dam further down the road on the left. lots of trees and the water...
if you're interested in company for walking I go around 2 pm on wed, thurs and fridays. let me know, we can meet. I carry my 8 month old on my back usually but strollers are an option at point pinole. ilona
