Welcome to Walnut Creek

Walnut Creek has exceptional balance of open space, residential areas, active business and commercial communities, parks, entertainment, and recreation. It is a comfortable city with apartment complexes, condominiums, single family dwellings, and multi acre ranch estates. Senior Citizens can find housing close to Walnut Creek’s downtown. Rossmoor, Northern California’s largest community for people fifty-five and older, boasts a great population in its beautiful secluded valley.

Massive Mt. Diablo dominates the local landscape. The city’s 2,500 acres of open space may be the most per capita for any urban community in the United States. Local outdoor enthusiasts have a wide choice of trails and open spaces where they can jog, bicycle, hike, or even ride horses. The climate, generally warm and comfortable, allows people to get out and enjoy Walnut Creek almost any time of year.

Excellent educational programs in public and private schools, plus diverse recreational opportunities, reflect a strong commitment to the youth of the community. The Regional Center for the Arts, completed in 1991, enriches the community with concerts, dance and dramatic productions. The Lindsay Museum has a modern facility where it will continue to care for
injured and sick wildlife and educate the community about their splendid natural surroundings.
