Civic Park is in the heart of Walnut Creek a little green oasis. It's a great place to relax in the sunny summer, play on the playground with your family, visit the library, play a game ball on the sunny green spot, enjoy a view of the river along the lake, park your car for free, and use the bathroom. In winter it's opening up to' Walnut Creek on Ice'–a chance for you to prove that you're not just a skier, but also a skater.
This multidimensional park links to the Iron Horse Trail and Creek Walk. Senior citizens' community center, gazebo, Civic Arts Studios, Park Place, and Assembly Hall are all run by the ARCS. The Civic Park is also managed by the Bufano Hand of Piece.
The park also has woodland gardens. Pass the orange wood and metal bridge to the left in the Civic Walk, join the parking lot. Between the Iron Horse Trail and the ball field where there are wildlife gardens.
The habitat gardens were originally designed by John Northmore Roberts and set up by LandArt in 1996. In 1999 Dann McCright and the Lindsay Wildlife Museum oversaw the construction of wildlife gardens in the area. The gardens have since become a virtual oasis for more than 25 butterfly species and 130 California native plants.
Tourists can find a variety of interpretive signs in the habitat gardens. Visitors to the park can stroll along the paths or relax in the shade of the oaks of the valley centuries old. The Creek Walk, following Walnut Creek, also leads through the gardens of the forest.
Weddings have become so popular here that they often have to be scheduled a year in advance. In Civic Park, you can book your social hall or conference room for a casual prayer dinner with ceremony and reception. Two small, unadorned rooms can be decorated in any style appropriate for you in the main building and a big commercial kitchen is opened up in the Social Hall. The taped lounge behind the house can be kept on the wedding day as a vestibule for the bridal party. A great plus for many brides is the fact that all important wedding areas are just steps apart, making it easy and convenient to move from the changing room to the ceremony in the gazebo.
Another plus is the simple architecture of the spacious Assembly Hall. The uncomplicated interior of the building is a blank canvas awaiting your own views, and the neutral tones of the well-lit space combine together with almost every decor. The six-foot banquet tables and metal and resin chairs offered by the center can be set up in any arrangement you like. Many people like to rent special chair covers, tableware and table settings. A full Bose sound system with speakers on all the top threetle beams will introduce your guests to music wherever the dance floor is positioned.
With the exception of tacks, staples, or screws, the transformation of the assembly hall is limited in your imagination. A bride and wife expanded their reception outside the house by opening the 10-foot glass sliding door to a little courtyard and beyond the backyard.
You'll also like the openness of the spaces in the middle and the park is sure to provide a lovely backdrop.
