The east end of Diane Street meets Tolman Creek Road. That’s where I began my walk in July 2023. As I walked west, I crossed Jaquelyn Street and Clay Creek. I reached the west end at Clay Street, then retraced my steps to Tolman Creek Road.
Who was Diane? I don’t know the answer to that question. Since the first houses were built here in 1949, I guess that the builder/developer of the street named it. A daughter? A friend? A famous person? If you have a clue, please email me.

Mostly ranch-style houses
Most of the houses on Diane Street were built either in 1949 or in the 1990s. Diane Street was developed in 1949 between Tolman Creek Road and Jaquelyn Street. Not until many years later, in 1989 and 1991, did the rest of Diane Street begin to be developed.

Clay Creek and a pocket park
The foliage is lush on the north side of Diane Street, as Clay Creek flows underneath.
On the south side of Diane Street is a lovely pocket park. It appears to have been recently created, or perhaps recently improved and replanted. You can sit on a bench to hear and watch Clay Creek flow by, or even dip your feet in the water on a hot summer day.
