On May 16, 2022, fuel reduction work began at Edgewood Park. Crews have performed wildfire hazard risk reduction with an 19-acre area of the park, working to thin understory to create shaded fuel breaks within 100 feet of the eastern and southeastern park boundary, and to remove of sudden oak death affected trees and other dead standing trees within 200 feet of select trails and neighboring structures. Work will continue through August.
The presence of crews and debris will require trail closures in the work area. Beginning Tuesday, August 9, Sylvan Trail will be closed between markers 3 and 16 and all of Baywood Glen Trail will be closed. These closures are planned to be in effect Monday through Friday, until Tuesday, August 23. See a map of the closed trails
