About Walnut Creek

Walnut Creek offers a compelling combination of Urban sophistication, Suburban ease, and is surrounded by nature. In fact, it owns more open space per capita than any other community in the state of California.  


With a vibrant downtown offering fine dining, world-class shopping, arts and entertainment it still maintains its small town quality of life, while offering a full range of amenities typically found in a much larger city.
