Over the last five years, during my daily early morning walk in Kinsmen Park I have witnessed the development of numerous mud/potholes in the grass.

Several of these holes are alongside the asphalt pathway and have been created as a result of vehicle traffic.

When the ground is wet, the vehicles’ tires squeeze mud on the pathway, which becomes a slipping hazard.

One such mud/pothole is now in excess of 10 metres long and at its widest point is 1.5 metres wide.

When it rains, the water collects and remains for days, if not weeks.

While these mud/potholes make excellent drinking spots for me during my walk, they also become mosquito breeding pods.

I was just wondering how long (human not dog years) before the city addresses this issue and rehabilitates the grass?
