Liberty Bell Plaza -- 1976
During the U.S. Bicentennial, then-President
Gerald R. Ford came to Walnut Creek to dedicate a replica of the Liberty Bell
as a war memorial. The bell was donated by the local chapter of Soroptimist
International. President Ford is the only sitting U.S. President to have made
an official visit to Walnut Creek. Liberty Bell Plaza was built later and
covers the confluence of the creeks that form Walnut Creek’s namesake creek:
Las Trampas and San Ramon creeks.
