Walnut Creek Linear Park Description

The Walnut Creek Linear Park is 1.9 miles of sun-dappled asphalt threading through five neighborhood parks, three residential communities and two schools. Anchored by Town Park to the east and the James McKnight Park to the west, the greenway delivers an immersive experience along its length. Apart from the parks and the myriad of activities therein, the trail also includes birdwatching stations, nature overlooks and picnic stations. The historic railroad bridge, Jeffryes Crossing completes the scenic experience.  

Work is underway to extend the linear park, which will be about 9 miles total once complete.
