Why you'd want to live in Saranap
Straddling both Lafayette and Walnut Creek, in an unincorporated part of the county, Saranap comes as a surprise to many. This diverse little hood, within walking distance to trails and downtown Walnut Creek, is a happy blend of longtime residents who remember the days of walnut orchards and young families with kids running from house to house. There is a surprising number of residents (aka Saranapans) that frequently walk the streets (yes, people actually walk in Saranap), spontaneous socials and holiday block parties. Today, you have a few fun spots in the Saranap neighborhood aside from the 7-11 slurpees such as Florali, Wish, Just Be Yoga , Dewing pool, Morucci’s, Walnut Creek Produce and Pizza Olivia. Many residents are hoping they can one day walk to the proposed Saranap Village by Hall Equities Group.
