Located 23 miles east of San Francisco, Walnut Creek, California is a city with a population of approximately 80,000. It's a "bedroom" community that, as few as thirty years ago, was known mainly for its network of creeks and acres of walnut groves. Originally, Walnut Creek was called "The Crossroads" because it was here that the roads leading from Martinez in the north and Oakland in the west converged.

Today, BART (Bay Area Regional Transit) connects Walnut Creek with San Francisco and other communities to the east and with East Bay communities to the north and south. While the downtown area is but a short walk from the BART station, there is an extensive bus system that covers much of the city and which provides free shuttle service throughout the downtown area.

Although Walnut Creek is considered a suburb to the Bay area, recreation and cultural activities abound within the area. Walnut Creek is also something of a restaurant mecca. Name your favorite cuisine, and, chances are, you will find one or more restaurants that serve it. On weekends from spring to fall, there are frequent arts and crafts festivals.

Outdoor recreation thrives in Walnut Creek including swimming year 'round at the Clarke Memorial Pool and, during the summer months, at Larkey Park. Golfers have a choice of the 18-hole municipal Boundary Oak Golf Course or the 9-hole Diablo Hills Course. Newly-renovated playgrounds with the latest in equipment are in most neighborhoods. A network of paved trails for walking, cycling, and skating traverses the city in all directions.

All in all, Walnut Creek is a great place to live and work.
