How time flies! It’s a scary thought to think that summer vacation is around the corner. Walnut Creek Rec is prepared with their Summer Camps schedule. Registration started March 2, 2015 accommodating ages 3-15 in various activities. We’re so lucky to have a great arts and recreation department to give us options for summer child care. Also don’t forget about our amazing rec swim teams sprinkled throughout the area.
Speaking of swimming , did you know the Larkey Pool is getting a complete redo over the next 12-18 months. The pool and building will be demolished and a new deeper, bigger (10 lanes) and a kid friendly splash pad will be built.Deeper was requested by the Aquanuts (synchronized swim team) who will be raising up to $500,000 over the next 5 years so they can practice in a deeper pool and thus move their swim shows to the Larkey Pool.
Daylight savings takes affect this Sunday March 8, 2015. Don’t forget to Spring Ahead by adjusting your clocks 1 hour forward.
Longer days and more sunlight means we can take advantage of the wonderful area we live in i.e., a walk through of one of our amazing Open Spaces. Within Walnut Creek alone, there are six beautiful areas to explore. It is a great place to get some exercise and spend some quality time either alone or with the whole family, especially our four legged family members, as they are allowed off leash.
The Walnut Creek Open Space Foundation has a great list of activities throughout the spring and can be found here.
At Oak Grove Blvd & Ygnacio Valley Road in the Shadelands Business Park. Safeway is finally building on their lot that has sat empty for so long – the last of what was once real orchards. Safeway’s new store will replace its smaller Encina Grande location across the street, where Whole Foods will move in.
The Orchards will include a Stein Mart, Crunch Fitness & Petco along with specialty shops, restaurants, 200 units of senior housing, green space, play area and jogging trails. This area has been languishing from a business perspective and the city has been trying to figure out how to reinvigorate it to be more like a Bishop Ranch. The problem is the commute – there is no easy access from Bart, thus people have to drive so many of the business once housed in the Shadelands have moved.
The Bay Area is a region of cutting edge ideas, that runs on creativity and vision. Walnut Creek as a city and a community finds it important to incorporate these inspirations of creativity and art into the evolving landscape of the city (which I might add has been well planned for years, starting with the insight to set aside open space for all of us to enjoy so close to home).
The Utility Art project demonstrates the growing public art movement of the city. These ugly utility boxes that stand on street corners, now curiously feature works by local artists featuring animals, abstracts, landscapes on eleven signal boxes throughout downtown.
The first time I saw one, I wondered about it, it definitely will spark a conversation. You may like them or you may not – they are bright and different, but isn’t that what art is suppose to do – make you think differently!
Share with me your favorite and least favorite. The painted utility boxes are to stick around for 18 months, I think they should stay, maybe with rotating artists. I could only find 9, but one article said there were 11, does anybody know where the other 2 are located?

This is what happens when somebody’s rent is going up from $2500 to $2800 – why waste it on rent, when you can own…
Met clients for the first time on 12/31 @ 2:30 spoke about the market, their needs and how I work – showed them 3 properties, drove by 2. They liked one and decided to sleep on it. I got an email on 1/1 saying they would like to write up an offer. We met on 1/2 at 3:30 after I found out their lender could not do the financing.
I set them up with JVM Lending, who was so efficient and top notch, they got fully approved that afternoon, so we wrote the offer and it was ratified at 10:30 the same night – whew! I would like to do that every week. I love motivated buyers.
