Trinity Avenue in Walnut Creek is the street that Civic turns into when you cross over Mt. Diablo Blvd. (the main drag going north south in Contra Costa County). It is basically just one long block that extends all the way to Highway 680, where it turns into a bridge over the freeway. It is unusual in that it is on a fairly steep slope so that it can duck under the BART tracks while still clearing the speeding traffic below. On the other side of the causeway Trinity turns into Terrace Road that feeds the snaking streets of the hilly Overlook neighborhood.

As to the actual street, Trinity Avenue is basically a long row of apartment buildings--one of many such streets in Walnut Creek. As I have started to price out apartments, it is actually one of the more affordable locations in Walnut Creek. You can actually find a one-bedroom for $1500, which is relatively reasonable for Walnut Creek--especially since you are within walking distance of Downtown Walnut Creek.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is on Trinity well, which I assume is why it is called Trinity. There is a big parking lot right across from it that I assume to be for the church?

The other benefit of living in Walnut Creek whether you live in one of the houses or one of the apartments as a single or divorced parent is that the Walnut Creek schools are some of the best around, with high API’s across the board. Trinity Avenue also has a pre-K Spanish immersion school, which looks pretty cool if you want to give your kid a head start on their foreign languages.

This is also great spot for commuters with the BART station basically within walking distance.

So you basically get the benefits of the suburbans in terms of safety and schools with apartment living, a thriving downtown and good job prospects. A pretty good deal for someone like me.
