With a retail district that competes with even the largest metropolitan areas and just a short 30-minute BART ride into San Francisco, Walnut Creek is widely recognized as the commercial hub of the East Bay. Its active downtown neighborhood and wide array of high-end retailers, restaurants, and bars offer something for almost everyone.
Walnut Creek is estimated to have the most available open land of any community in the state of California. With 22 parks within the city and Mount Diablo State Park on its outskirts, Walnut Creek is the perfect setting to explore a farmer’s market, take a bike ride along the miles of trails, hop in the Olympic sized pool at Heather Farms Park, and attend a concert at the Dean Lesher Center for the Arts. Walnut Creek is truly a blend of natural beauty, artistic culture, shopping, and entertainment, offering its residents the highest quality of life.
Walnut Creek is approximately 25 miles east of San Francisco and 50 miles north of Silicon Valley.
