Just under two miles from 680/24 heading east on Ygnacio Valley Road you will find the city of Walnut Creek’s hidden gems, the Lakewood neighborhood. 

Mostly modest ranch style homes dating back to the 1940s, tree-lined winding roads, and traditions such as the July 4 parade are characteristic of this quaint and rural neighborhood. 

Those lucky enough to call Lakewood home have access to the private lake for a fee. The neighborhood’s central location affords it residents easy access to downtown Walnut Creek, major highways, and access to Shell Ridge Open Space for hiking and recreation. Residents can also take a dip in the pool at Indian Valley Swim Club which offers a swim team and lessons. 

Homes in Lakewood are zoned for award-winning schools including Indian Valley Elementary (8/10), Walnut Creek Intermediate (8/10), and Las Lomas High School (9/10).
