Six East Bay parks close as intense winds wreak havoc

The danger presented by high winds has prompted the East Bay Regional Park District to close until at least 8 a.m.

Roberts Park, Sibley Park, Huckleberry Botanical Regional Preserve and Reinhardt Redwood Regional Park, all in Oakland, Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve in Berkeley and Anthony Chabot Regional Park in Castro Valley are closed as of 6 p.m. Sunday.

Park district crews continue to respond to myriad reports of trees and power lines downed by winds that, in some of the East Bay’s higher elevations — where most of these parks are — saw wind gusts of up to 90 mph and were expecting high winds overnight into Monday.

Other park district properties are affected by downed trees or other wind-related problems, including Golf Course Road in Tilden Regional Park in the hills above Oakland; all such closed areas are marked, the park district said Sunday night.

All EBRPD parks have a curfew of 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily.
