"Best City Just to the East of the Contra Costas"

Marchbanks Drive is a big horseshoe that starts and ends at Ygnacio Valley Road. At its eastern inlet you find all of the more interesting stuff when it comes to outdoor activity. (This eastern inlet is also where my own personal veterinarian is—Valley Vet. They are really great.) You will find a great skate park here—an actual place skateboarders can go to skate and not get kicked out because that is the very purpose of it. After this, there is the edge of Heather Farms Park right where the community pool is. If you live in the area and haven’t been there, this is definitely the park to go to. On the western side of the street you will find the Diablo Golf Course with their very mediocre restaurant, the Greenery. It’s a nice sprawling golf course that cuts through the nearby condos.

As Marchbanks Drive curls around you will find various very nice relatively new homes (maybe built in the early 90’s) with large pools. As you start to come back around to Ygnacio Valley you will find lots and lots of well kept and probably overpriced apartment buildings. (It is generally pretty expensive to rent in Walnut Creek.) These apartments would be especially great for anyone who works at Muir Hospital, since that is right across the street. So if you’re a nurse there, you could hardly find a better commute.
