Great neighborhood. Very safe. Grew up there, and went to Collegewood Elementary, Suzanne middle school, Walnut high school, and Mount San Antonio College! Great education and very clean.

Walnut is a quiet and cozy town. The environment is beautiful and safe. The school district is excellent. High quality education is an important symbol of the city. The traffic is developed. A number of highways pass through the city or the surrounding area, and there is a train station that leads to downtown LA. Commercial facilities, sports parks, and public leisure places are relatively complete. It is a livable city.
It is a nice, quiet residential suburb of Los Angeles, making it a good place to reside while also allowing its residents to quickly go to the neighboring cities to shop or Downtown. But due to its residential property, there are few jobs within the city aside from retails for most residents and would need to commute to larger cities for more lucrative opportunities. The fact that Walnut is home to an excellent community college is also a bonus.
