About Us

The Parkmead Community Association helps promote the peace, health, safety, quality of life and environment of the Parkmead community area by encouraging and sponsoring neighborhood activities and events and communicating the interests of the membership and community to governmental bodies. We do this by:

  • Fostering a Community — by organizing neighborhood social events including the Summer Block Party BBQ, the Fall Pizza Party and the Spring Ice Cream Social.  See Events.

  • Representing the Area — liaising with governmental bodies including City of Walnut Creek, Contra Costa County, and watchdog committees to stay abreast of any planned changes.

  • Keeping Neighbors Informed — notifying residents about local changes that may impact them, gathering suggestions on how our quality of life could be improved and arranging guest speakers at social events. Also by distributing PCA newsletters to all residents and supporting this website.  See Newsletters.

  • Sponsoring neighborhood projects — organizing garage sales, welcoming new neighbors, supporting small "house parties," co-sponsoring neighborhood projects for residents in need of yard and house upkeep, and encouraging the Parkmead History Project. See History Project.

  • Encouraging Neighborhood Health and Safety— participating in Emergency Preparedness, Neighborhood Watch, Walk-To-School Week and Walnut Creek Wellness Challenge.  See Local Links.
