Orinda

Welcome to Orinda

Orinda (approx. pop. 18,500) was recently ranked the second most friendly town in America by Forbes. The town is located just east of Berkeley and is home to many affluent suburban professionals who commute to downtown Oakland, San Francisco, and Walnut Creek. Its location provides for a more rustic landscape, and Orinda’s many parks and trails make it a destination for many Bay Area hikers and naturalists. Orinda is a family-oriented community with a semi-rural setting. In contrast to the more urban existence of the surrounding area, the tree-studded hillsides of the 12.8 square-mile city contribute to Orinda’s aesthetic beauty. Natural beauty, excellent schools, safety, culture and close proximity to major San Francisco Bay locations and activities make Orinda a very popular place for families.
