Welcome to Walnut Creek
Walnut Creek is located 16 miles east of Oakland in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. The city serves as a hub within central Contra Costa County, due in part to its location at the junction of the highways from Sacramento and San Jose (I-680) and San Francisco/Oakland (SR-24), as well as its accessibility by BART. With its mild Mediterranean climate and beautiful setting at the foot of Mount Diablo, Walnut Creek offers a blend of urban flair, suburban grace and peaceful wilderness. The city boasts more than 100 restaurants and nightclubs, 105,000 acres of accessible open space, and 520 miles of trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Major employers are John Muir Health (4,600+) and Kaiser Permanente (2,300+).
