Hole in backyard

Hi,

This is my first post here and appreciate the help.

Yesterday, I found this strange hole in my backyard. When I took out the rocks that had fallen into the hole, it seemed to be have a concrete structure on at least three sides. I'm wondering what this is and if I should just fill it in with dirt and be done with it?

It looks like it once held a 4x4 wood post. I'd fill it in so nobody gets their foot caught in it.

Me three, I wonder if there was an issue with that wall and a 4x4 was used to help support it.

I can remember as a kid having an opening like that in the backyard for the septic system. It was covered with a metal plate. I think we got sewers when I was around 9-10 so I don't remember it very well but I remember what it looked like.
