The path that leads from the neighborhood park toward the mall and metro has a 3' diameter depression in it that collects water. You have to step into the mud to avoid the puddle when it rains. In the winter, ice forms and creates a hazard. This is a main communter path.
Walking from the 16th St. follow the path toward the park. After you go down the small slope and cross the path that runs from Joyce St to the soccer field, the depression is in front of you.
This path was recently paved, and the contractor should come back and fix the problem.
