Nature lovers and joggers who frequent Forest Park say that the sidewalk and the main path in the park are so rundown that they pose a safety hazard.
“It’s horrendous,” said Ed Wendell of the Woodhaven Residents' Block Association, who goes to the park regularly.
The cracks and holes in the sidewalk along the main path in the park are occasionally patched, but the path requires major repairs, residents said.
“Almost the entire thing needs to be replaced,” said Wendell. “It’s broken and it’s dangerous.”
Wendell said that recently he took “two nasty falls in Forest Park.”
Last year, he said, he tripped on a cracked sidewalk, and a few weeks ago, he slipped on loose gravel.
You gotta love this town. The health dept tells you to walk and bike for exercise, but the transportation dept lets you fall in a hole while you're doing it.
