Re: Bay area spot w/ great biking/schools/lots of kids
We were in the same dilemma 10 years ago and looked throughout Walnut Creek and Lafayette. My realtor insisted we look at a Concord neighborhood, and we ended up here! Our neighborhood attends Foothill Middle School and Northgate High School, and the homes are a fraction of the cost of those other areas. We live on a cul-de-sac, have a green belt with walking paths, pools, swim team, tennis courts, preschool, dog park, and playgrounds. We live at the base of Mt. Diablo, so hiking trails are minutes away. Our neighborhood is diverse, there are a ton of kids, and we really couldn't be happier. The homes were built in the 70's, the yards are mostly on the small side, but my kids ride their bikes in the front and in the green belt instead. You can check out the neighborhood at Happy mama

Playgroup in Concord area

Dec 2011

I am a new mom to a 9-month old daughter and am looking to join a playgroup in the Concord/Pleasant Hill/Walnut Creek area. I'd prefer a group for first-time moms with kids in the same age group. Please contact me! Amanda

There are two great mother's clubs that have playgroups. Mt. Diablo Mother's Club ( has a lot of members living in Concord, Clayton, Walnut Creek, and Martinez. It's pretty close-knit so you will make friends right away at any event or playgroup. There is also the Pleasant Hill/Walnut Creek Mother's Club ( which is bigger. They also have great playgroups. You can join either one, no matter where you live in the area. Concord Mom
