SEE WHY OUR CLIENTS COME BACK TIME & AGAINReputation Reviews
In Contra Costa County, California, USA, Orinda is a town. At the 2010 census, the population was 17,643, and it was projected to have grown to 19,926 in 2019. In 2012, Forbes ranked Orinda as the second most pleasant city in America. The city is just east of Berkeley and is home to many wealthy suburban workers who move to larger cities such as Oakland, San Francisco, and Walnut Creek in the Bay Area. A more rustic scenery is offered by its location, and its many parks and trails make it a refuge for hikers and naturalists from the Bay Area.
Four Mexican land grants are found in Orinda: Rancho Laguna de los Palos Colorados, Rancho Acalanes, Rancho El Sobrante and Rancho Boca de la Cañada del Pinole. Originally, the area was agricultural, popular primarily for ranching and summer cabins. The property was named by Alice Marsh Cameron in the late 19th century, possibly in honor of the poet Katherine Philips, who was sometimes known as the 'Matchless Orinda.'
Theodore Wagner, United States Surveyor General for California, designed an estate he called Orinda Park in the 1880s. In 1888, the Orinda Park post office opened. In 1895, the post office's name was changed to Orinda. Bryant Station, a stop on the abandoned California and Nevada Railroad at the turn of the 20th century, was also the location of Orinda. Later, it was known as Orinda Crossroads, the area around Bryant Station.
After the 1937 construction of the Caldecott Tunnel, which offered better access to the west, Orinda's reputation as a year-round residence increased. On July 1, 1985, the city of Orinda was incorporated, bisected by California State Route 24 and surrounded by its rolling oak-covered hills. Richard G. Heggie was the first mayor. The city has a stop on the Bay Area Rapid Transit's Antioch-SFO/Millbrae line.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 12.7 sq mi (33 km2), of which 12.7 sq mi (33 km2) is land and 0.015 sq mi (0.039 km2) (0.12 percent) is water.
The region is characterized by a Mediterranean warm-summer climate with cold rainy winters and warm dry summers (Köppen climate classification Csb). Because Orinda is situated in a hilly region, temperature variations are often dominated by microclimates over short distances. The cold foggy conditions that can be seen in Oakland and the inner bay are always obscured by the Oakland Hills. Fog will spill over the Oakland hills in the summer, cooling off the area. In Orinda, heatwaves from the inland areas can be felt even more in the summer than in Oakland and the inner bay. Because of its greater elevation, Orinda also experiences more snow than neighboring areas in the winter. It's an unusual snowfall, but not unheard of. In any given year, due to the elevation, a dusting of snow can take place. Mornings may be chilly and frosty in downtown and lower-lying areas during stable temperatures in the winter, although the higher hills around the city may be many degrees colder.
