I grew up in Fremont, California. Graduated from High School in 1973 from Washington High School. The walk from Mildred to Eggers Drive all the way to Fremont Blvd brought me to school formy Centerville Junior High School and then my graduating Washington High School. Fond memories of the Apricot Orchards in my home town neighborhood at the end of our street before the remaining MoreGlen Homes were built. My home was built by MoreGlenn, Down the street further were GlenManor Homes. The Street right behind our Mildred was Richmond and that was the boundary street for the Glenmore Homes. Fond memories of walking to SaveMart and the Glenmore Shopping center for El Patio, for the Five & Dime Store for candy with our allowance. A quick walk to the local neighborhood grocery store for groceries with mom's list. Great memories of walking to the Hub Shopping center when Montgomery Wards was there and Mervyns. More fun memories walking all the way to Lake Elizabeth with friends. I remember when Lake Elizabeth was just a little lake for paddle boating and for $3 we could paddle boat, and lay on the grass and read books with a friend. Those were the days of my childhood memories. Great memories of playing baseball at the end of Mildred before they build new homes that made the court at the end of our street with neighborhood friends. Building forts in the long wild grass of the vacant field at the end of our street until they took down the apricot orchards and built those new homes at the end of our street which are now Mildred Court and Brophy. Climbing Mission Peak always a refreshing joyful accomplishment even today. Takes me much longer to conquer that huge Mission Peak Mountain. Views of all our Silicon Valley to the San Francisco Bay are so beautiful.
Last couple of years and 2015, 2016 and 2017 are fabulous years for new construction in our Tri Cities communities. Newark, Union City, and Fremont are adding a significant number of brand new construction homes. These New Home Builders are developing many beautiful New Home Communities throughout all our Tri-Cities. Land is so scarce you do not see new homes with huge back yards, so there are still the beautiful resale home neighborhoods that offer gorgeous homes with large back yards. New Homes have much smaller lot sizes today. Because land is so scarce and more expensive today for the builders, they are desgining vertical homes. Structures with two to three levels in some communities, smaller lot sizes. Trending are more walkable communities for dining and shopping and close to public transportation systems like bart. A brand new bart just opened in Warm Springs, adding more convenience for commuters in South Fremont and Warm Springs to hop on Bart and commute for work and recreation. Central Fremont is in the process of designing Downtown Main Street. This is on Capital and State Street location of Fremont. Adding more new restaurants, shopping and high density housing. High Density Housing is the trend in many of our neighboring communities too, making the most out of very little available land left to develop. It has been referenced that we are transitioning from a suburban community to more of a urban community over the years to come. Ohonle College is expanding too, and is a beautiful two year college for you to consider your children to start their higher education after high school. For adults who just want to enrich their lives or make career changes, you will enjoy this beautiful campus.
Fremont is divided into five districts. Ardenwood-North Fremont-Zip Code 94555; Centerville- Central Fremont-94536; Irvington- Zip Code 94538; Niles ( Historical Niles) - zip Code 94536. Niles is home to the Niles Train Depot, memories of Charlie Chaplin who directed silent films in the town of Niles and had a studio there. Antiques, and charming restaurant. The feel of a small charming town that is walkable to almost every need you have.
