Cabrillo is a neighborhood located in the northwest corner of Fremont, California. The neighborhood is bordered by Ardenwood Boulevard to the north, Paseo Padre Parkway to the east, Deep Creek Road to the south, and Union City to the west.
The Cabrillo neighborhood was developed from the early 1950s through the early 1970s. This predates the establishment of the City in 1956 when five townships; Niles, Mission, Irvington, Centerville and Warm Springs incorporated to form Fremont. The neighborhood was named after the Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who explored the coast of California in the 16th century.
Cabrillo is primarily a residential neighborhood, with a mix of single-family homes and apartments. The area enjoys a Mediterranean climate with bay breeze cooled evenings making plantings flourish and air-conditioning optional.

Union Landing, built on the old Union City Drive In Movie Theater Lot and Pacific Commons built on 840 acres of the former Fremont Dragstrip/Baylands Raceway Park. Both offer a variety of retail, restaurants, movie theaters and big box stores.
The area is known for its natural beauty and recreational opportunities with public tennis, basketball courts and batting cages nearby. The neighborhood's proximity to 1266 acres of Coyote Regional Park, Alameda Creek and the bay makes bird-watching a popular pastime.
