Located just east of the city of Berkeley, Orinda is an easy commute to San Francisco, Oakland or Walnut Creek. Known for its unspoiled landscapes, it is a favorite destination for hikers and naturalists who frequent the area’s parks and trails.
With some of the state’s top schools and a high standard of living, Orinda has been a desirable suburban locale since the late 1930s when the Caldecott Tunnel opened an expressway to Oakland and San Francisco. Incorporated in 1985, it continues to be a popular place to live, shop, and visit.
Conveniently close to BART, Berkeley, and San Francisco, Orinda is best known for the California Shakespeare Theater (Cal Shakes), the restored art deco Orinda Theatre, and its proximity to nearby Briones Regional Park.
