Cherryland is an unincorporated district of Alameda County between cities San Leandro to the north and Hayward to the south. At one time Cherryland was filled with cherry trees. The palatial Meek Mansion built in 1869 by Alameda's first farmer, William Meek, still stands on Hampton Road in the Northern part of Cherryland. The mansion is maintained by the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District, in conjunction with the Hayward Area Historical Society. The Cherryland Community Association is composed of volunteer residents.
