The Lodi Lake Nature Area reopened on Thursday, which was earlier than expected, after it flooded during the Fourth of July weekend.
City crews were able to clear any trees or fallen limbs to make the park safe for the public, city spokesman Jeff Hood said.
The city closed the park on July 2 because water had flooded several of the trails in the nature area and stretched all the way to the front fence near the redwood trees. It was more than a foot deep in some locations.
Several weeks ago, East Bay Municipal Utility District released 5,000 cubic feet per second of water through Camanche Dam last week to avoid having the dam overflow from late-season rains and snowfall.
About 10 trees fell down as a result of the flooding, and the city had to move at least one that was blocking one of the trails.
