Walnut is a city located in Los Angeles County, California. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 30,004.
The area was once predominantly white. Upper-middle-class Asian immigrants have settled in Walnut, where they now form the majority of the population. Many immigrants are from Taiwan, but there is a growing affluent Mainland Chinese expatriate population too. The growing amount of Asian-owned businesses are not an uncommon sight in the area.
With exceptions to some busy intersections (such as near Mt. San Antonio College), the hilly and affluent city is considerably more relaxed in comparison to most nearby neighborhoods.
