The City of Lafayette offers residents and visitors beautiful rolling hills, tree-lined streets with excellent shopping as well as an upscale standard of living. Situated conveniently between the City of Orinda and City of Walnut Creek, it is easy to get to just about anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area from this prestigious community. Also, conveniently, there is a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station that makes Oakland and San Francisco travel very easy indeed.
Lafayette has just about everything a family could desire—fine schools, shopping, and even the “Town Hall Theatre” to enjoy the occasional play. The Lafayette Park Hotel is a wonderful five diamond hotel, one of only six in the San Francisco Bay Area, and is a great place to share intimate first class dining.
There are 23,000 residents enjoying this delightful small town atmosphere, as well as income well above the national norm. Homes and estates are generally nestled in very desirable wooded settings, and the nearby Lafayette Reservoir offers an excellent “close-in” place to take a run, fish a little, or enjoy a family picnic.
Lafayette Library and Learning Center
A visionary construct of education, collaboration and community, the Lafayette Library and Learning Center (LLLC), home of the Glenn Seaborg Learning Consortium, is a place where all generations can gather for enriched intellectual and cultural experiences.
Located in the heart of Lafayette, at the corner of Mt. Diablo Boulevard and First Street, the LLLC is ADA-compliant and offers on-site parking, convenient access by public transportation, and is within walking distance of several schools, senior housing, BART and many of the community’s neighborhoods. The facility exceeds 30,000 square feet, with a separate Children’s Area, Technology Lab and more.
Lafayette Library and Learning Center is the largest and most complex public/private project in Lafayette’s history. More than 10 years in the making, with $12.5M raised by private funds, $11.9M from a state grant, and the rest by public funds, the LLLC represents a community-driven effort to build a regional resource and national model for the library of the future.
Town Hall Theatre / Town Hall Kids
Established in 1944 as the Dramateurs and reorganized in 1992 as the Town Hall Theatre Company of Lafayette, we are the oldest continuously active theater in Contra Costa County. We are a professionally managed non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors drawn from the leaders of the local business and artistic communities. Town Hall Theatre Company is dedicated to providing a community-based performing arts resource.
Town Hall Theatre Company believes in a theater that is an artistic focal point in the community, that serves the community in a socially and educationally responsible manner, and that provides creative opportunities for performers, designers, technicians, directors, writers, educators and students, both within and outside of the Lamorinda community, as well as in the greater Bay Area.
