FOR THOSE WHO STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES
The Gardens at Heather Farm is a free public garden less than a 5-minute drive away from your doorstep that features more than 10 different themed garden areas. A focal point is The Gardens’ Cowden Rose Garden that features more than 1,000 roses in the heart of the property that bloom from spring through fall. If you’re inspired to get more “hands-on,” The Gardens offers community plots, volunteer opportunities and adult education classes for budding botanists looking to get their hands dirty.
Just as close to Viamonte at Walnut Creek is The Ruth Bancroft Garden that boasts the largest collection of succulents from around the world. Bring your lunch and eat at the garden’s café tables scattered throughout the property or sign up for one of their many workshops in areas like garden photography or succulent crafts. If you’re inspired by what you see, there’s a nursery on-site selling a selection of succulents and cacti to bring back to your windowsill.
FOR THE OUTDOOR ENTHUSIAST
Viamonte at Walnut Creek rests at the foothills of Mt. Diablo, making it an ideal hiking destination in the Bay Area for nature lovers looking to see things from an elevated point of view. Pack a picnic for a meal with a view, hike the nearby trails or enjoy the breathtaking views right from your balcony. Mt. Diablo serves as the picturesque backdrop for everything you’ll be doing in the area (and no, the view never does get old).
FOR THE ERRAND RUNNER
If you have a long list of to-do’s and are looking to get your errands done quickly so you can hit the trails of Mt. Diablo sooner, convenient stops at either the Ygnacio Plaza Shopping Center or Countrywood Shopping Center will help you accomplish it all. They have local shops, national chains, and pharmacies all in one place.

The Lesher Center for the Arts is a premier arts destination that hosts comedy, dance, music and theatrical performances year-round, right in Walnut Creek. With restaurants and retail nearby, it’s easy to fill an entertaining evening in Walnut Creek’s Arts District. The Lesher Center is an architecturally striking performance center with three separate venues and a packed calendar of eclectic shows. Be captivated by a world premiere ballet or keel over with laughter at an improv comedy show.
