South Locust Garage Painting Project

PROJECT UPDATE: The South Locust Parking Garage painting project is progressing. The interior painting of floors 4 and 5 are scheduled to be completed the week of Aug 11. Once complete, the contractors will move forward to power wash and paint floors 3 and 2. This means there will be less parking available. We encourage those who regularly use this garage to use alternatives (see locations below).

Project Overview

The City of Walnut Creek will be painting the interior and exterior of the South Locust Parking Garage to make it a better, brighter and safer place to park. The project will begin on July 17 and be completed by the end of September. The garage will be closed intermittently throughout the course of the project. Look for signage posted at the garage. Tender Greens will remain open during the painting project.
