Welcome to Walnut Creek

What makes Walnut Creek so unique is that it has a large population (almost 70,000 residents) yet it retains many smaller eco-communities that are perfect for day-to-day living. Hidden enclaves such as Walnut Knolls offer privacy and tranquility, where larger communities such as Woodlands and Outlook offer sweeping views and majestic trails. The city is filled with neighborhood parks, playgrounds, pools and endless fun things to do. The tree-lined 55+ community of Rossmoor is also a popular choice for active seniors. Overall, Walnut Creek offers the perfect fit for residents of any age, lifestyle or interest.
 
Walnut Creek is the home to the popular outdoor shopping mall, The Broadway Plaza. Located in downtown Walnut Creek, this mall features luxury shopping like Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, Apple, and Tesla. Its commuter access to this city is ideal and makes it perfect for professionals, yet it offers a haven for singletons and families as well. You can also visit the awesome Lesher Center for the Performing Arts and the multiple downtown street fairs and events. In Walnut Creek there is always something happening to enjoy.
 
The architecture of Walnut Creek is varied as well. While the Rancho San Miguel neighborhood is brimming with Eichlers and other mid-century treasures, the Parkmead community boasts modest bungalows and easygoing ranch homes. Other beautiful tree-lined neighborhoods include Lakewood, Rancho Paraiso, Walnut Heights, and Northgate, to name a few. The entire town is bordered by rolling hills and studded with oak and walnut trees, creeks and trails.
