With hundreds of acres of parks, miles of well-maintained trails and a thriving performing arts scene, Walnut Creek assisted living is the perfect place for active senior citizens since it incorporates big city cultural attractions and amenities into small-town living.

Walnut Creek Recreation

The city of Walnut Creek owns more open spaces than any other community in California. This means that Walnut Creek senior living residents are able to enjoy over 1,800 acres of public land at their leisure. Favorite parks include the Gardens at Heather Farm with over 23 demonstration gardens, the Ruth Bancroft Garden with its hundreds of varieties of cacti, and over 177-acres of spectacular views and scenic trails at the Sugarloaf Open Space. For indoor activities, Walnut Creek residents head to the Broadway Plaza Shopping Center, which was founded in 1951 and is one of the oldest shopping centers in Walnut Creek.
