Unfortunately that section of the park has glass embedded in the soil for at least a few inches. It's from the houses in Regent Square at the top of the hill. For over 50 years the residents tossed trash over the hill, and now that means that the surviving materials (glass, ceramic, concrete, and to some extent metal) slowly works its way down the hill over time. After every hard rain we find new glass. It isn't going anywhere, but sometimes a "stash" is uncovered and could be removed. Sounds like you found one.
The good news is that since the glass has been weathering the elements for so long, most of it has eroded into smooth, relatively harmless bits.
I live in one of those houses and have been trying to figure out a way to make it safe for kids to play in these woods, but I think I've come to the conclusion that it's not going to happen in my lifetime. So, they just play anyway and we make sure their tetanus shots are current.

Did they put the tree parts on the ridge which serves as the entry to the beginning climb to get to 276? Why not have them do something useful, like clean up the garbage in the creek and on both sides? there are a couple of big trees down on 276, any plan to remove them, transform them into obstacles?
