The town of Walnut Creek got its name from the occurrences of the native species of walnut tree in the valley, the California Walnut. Walnut Creek owns more open space per capita than any other community in the state of California. The city also hosts the Pac-12 Conference, a collegiate athletic conference that operates in the Western United States. In 2012, CBS Money Watch and U.S. News both listed Walnut Creek among the 10 best places to retire in the U.S. Known for its public transportation and bike paths, the city hosts two Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations. Two bike trails transect the city. In addition to the many bike lanes in the city, this makes bicycle transportation very easy for recreation or commuting.
Walnut Creek’s warm summer Mediterranean climate is typical of California’s interior valleys. Residents enjoy an average of 262 sunny days per year— plenty of reason to build a custom deck at their home.
