Short Summary

Garber Park is a 13-acre wildland park owned by the City of Oakland located behind the Claremont Hotel in Claremont Canyon. Garber Park is home to significant stands of big-leaf maple, California buckeyes and regenerating coast live oak woodland and forest. The Garber Park Stewards vision is to safeguard the native wildland resources of Garber Park while reducing the risk of wildfire and improving the trail system.

WPAD Clears Claremont Avenue!

Oakland's Wildfire Prevention Assessment District cleared Claremont Avenue today!  We can actually see a shoulder so bicyclists can ride without being pushed into the fast moving traffic,  and a parking turn-out near the old 1920's built trail (that the Garber Park Stewards are restoring) into Garber Park was revealed.

Thank you, Vince Crudele, the newly hired WPAD vegetation management supervisor, for getting this done.  We've never seen such a thorough job on Claremont Ave.
