Where are the sidewalks & playgrounds in Lamorinda?
We are considering a move to Lamorinda from our current home in the Oakland hills. Desire for more space and better schools are the motivating factors.
One thing that has surprised us when we drive around the various neighborhoods is that there are very few side walks and the roads are quite tight. It does not seem like a place that would allow for walking around with small children. Yet we continue to hear how family friendly these neighborhoods are, and that in many areas, kids walk to school. For example, I have heard that in Happy Valley, kids walk to elementary school. I just don't see how because the roads don't have sidewalks. Also, are there playgrounds/parks in the area? Where do kids congregate on weekends?
Maybe I am seeking something that isn't there - but would love perspective from those with young families in Lamorinda.
