Often referred to as the “jewel of the east bay”, Walnut Creek is a verdant oasis tucked into the foothills of Mount Diablo, about 16 miles east of Oakland.
Easily accessible by freeway, Walnut Creek is located at the junction of I-680, SR-24 and 242. The town features two BART stations, Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill, and public transit services the local business parks.
Cyclists will be right at home as bike lanes and dedicated trails run throughout. With more than 100 restaurants, shopping boutiques, galleries, theaters, and seasonal festivals, it is little wonder Walnut Creek is one of the most desirable addresses in California.
