Welcome to Walnut Creek!

Interesting facts about Walnut Creek | Walnut Creek Event |

Located in the shadow of beautiful Mount Diablo, Walnut Creek is considered by many the hub of San Francisco’s East Bay. From upscale shopping and dining to a plethora of outdoor activities and amenities, the people who live here love it, and those that visit, keep coming back for more.

The city is ideally located in the 680 Corridor (Sacramento/San Jose I-680 or San Francisco/Oakland SR-24) and is easily accessible via BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit).

With an ideal Mediterranean climate, Walnut Creek owns more open space than any other community in California. Do you like to bike, hike, or run or just enjoy the outdoors? Look no further. The East Bay Regional Park District owns Diablo Foothills Regional Park and Castle Rock Regional Recreation Area both located in Walnut Creek—the ideal outdoor playgrounds for enthusiasts of all ages.

The city’s shopping center, Broadway Plaza boasts anchor tenants, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Macy’s and is part of the bustling downtown retail and restaurant district. With upscale restaurants, breweries, coffee shops and more, the downtown area offers pedestrian walkways, tree-lined streets and patio seating which lend to the city’s small-town feel.

On the weekends, bring the farmhouse to your table and visit the Diablo Valley Farmer’s Market (located in the Shadelands Business Park on Saturdays 9-1) and the Contra Costa Certified Farmer’s Market (located on Locust Street on Sundays 9-1). With a bountiful assortment of offerings plus live entertainment and activities for the kids, it’s the perfect way to jumpstart your morning and experience local treats grown right in your backyard.

And if you are looking for entertainment…The Lesher Center for the Arts and the Center Repertory Theatre stage several productions throughout the year.

Live, work, play or stay. It’s no wonder why people call Walnut Creek (walnut-creek.com) home.
