Just because the only thing falling from the Bay Area sky Tuesday was sunlight doesn’t mean the danger has passed.

The East Bay Regional Park District said Tuesday some parks and trails will remain closed until the danger of mudslides and falling trees returns to normal after the past few weeks of stormy weather.

“This is a time when everyone wants to get outside,” park district spokesperson Dave Mason said. “But the hazards still remain.”
Parks that remain completely closed from storm damage include Anthony Chabot, Del Valle, Sunol Wilderness, and Ohlone Wilderness.
