Walnut Creek is an incorporated city located 16 miles (26 km) east of the city of Oakland, in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. While not as large as neighboring Concord, Walnut Creek serves as the business and entertainment hub for the neighboring cities 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, as well as its accessibility by BART. The city had a total population of 64,173 according to the 2010 U.S. Census. Walnut Creek is the headquarters of the Pac-12 Conference.
The area is characterized by a warm summer Mediterranean climate with cool, moist winters and warm to hot dry summers. The climate allows for the successful cultivation of many plants and crops, being warm enough for citrus yet cold enough for apples. The Ruth Bancroft Garden is a renowned botanical garden that showcases the diversity of plants that can be successfully grown.
