The City of Walnut Creek, nestled at the foot of Mt. Diablo in Contra Costa County, is a vibrant community positioned just 23 miles east of San Francisco. Incorporated in 1914, the City has grown from a sleepy residential community of 2,460 residents in 1950 into a thriving commercial center recently designated as the region’s “entrepreneurial hub.” Presenting a wide range of cultural, educational, and entertainment amenities, the City’s convenient location allows its 66,000 residents to enjoy a variety of unique and scenic attractions in the Bay Area and throughout Northern California. Attractive homes, excellent schools, access to premier health care facilities, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), convenient shopping, and fine dining have established Walnut Creek as one of the area’s most desirable cities in which to live. In addition to a wonderful quality of life for residents, the City offers its visitors a wide array of business, entertainment and recreational opportunities including numerous parks and open space, the spectacular Lesher Center for the Arts and a vibrant downtown where things are happening.
