The City of Richmond

Best known for its unique history and role in the World War II home front effort, the City of Richmond is located 16 miles northeast of San Francisco on the western shore of Contra Costa County. Between 1940 and 1945, tens of thousands of workers from all over the country streamed into the City to support wartime industries. The City housed the most productive shipbuilding operations of World War II, launching 747 ships during that time, and is now the proud home of the Rosie the Riveter National Historic Park. Today, Richmond is an important industrial, commercial, oil refining, shipping, government, and transportation center, with centrally located access to BART, AC Transit, Amtrak, ferry, and two freeways. Best of all, Richmond is a welcoming and still an affordable community!

Richmond is diversifying beyond its historic relationship with heavy industry and evolving into a “home front” for innovation in biotechnology, green technology, alternative energy, and artisanal food manufacturing. Richmond’s thriving business environment is complemented by residents who are active and engaged, a rich heritage of cultural and racial diversity, welcoming neighborhoods, pristine marinas, recreational and arts-focused amenities, thousands of acres of contiguous inland regional parks, and more Bay Trail completed than any other city in the Bay Area. We invite you to experience the new energy of Richmond!
