The ‘chill’ has been returned to Vancouver’s Dude Chilling Park.

The park’s famous sign was allegedly stolen during the week of June 25, resulting in a major lack of chill.

But according to a tweet from the Vancouver Park Board, the sign has now been replaced.

“The Dude abides! Purloined park sign back home in Guelph Park today, thanks to speedy replacement by #VanParkBoard staff. Resume chilling, one and all,” wrote the Park Board.

In a previous interview with Daily Hive, Alex Downie, Manager of Park Operations for the Vancouver Park Board, said the sign was most likely stolen “as a souvenir to decorate someone’s basement [or] rec room.”

The last time the park’s sign was stolen was back in 2014, and it was never recovered.
