Situated at the crossroads of Interstates 580 and 680, Dublin claims an ideal location within the Bay Area. With the completion of the BART station in 1997, Dublin is growing in popularity as a bedroom community. The city's own economic base continues to expand as well, attracting new businesses with its combination of extensive commercial and warehouse space and excellent transportation amenities. True to its Irish roots and legacy, the city claims a cloverleaf for its symbol and is known throughout the region for its colorful St. Patrick's Day festivals. Dublin is an attractive community filled with lovely parks and excellent recreational amenities. Among the highlights are the Dublin Sports Grounds for soccer, baseball and softball; the senior center with ongoing programs; the Shannon Community Center with preschool programs, aerobics and other activities; and the Dublin Swim Center.
