City of Vermilion Skate Park Opens


The City of Vermilion Skate Park has reopened, following its closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Located on the corner of Douglas Street and Devon Drive, this facility is open dawn to dusk and has ramps, bars for sliding, and can be used by those with bikes and skateboards.

“Though ‘playgrounds’ are not officially open yet, according to the Health Department, the Skate Park will be open as long as users make an effort at social distancing, cleaning up etc.,” stated Mayor Forthofer. “My thinking is that there is less surface-to-skin contact at the Skate Park than on playground equipment (unless something goes horribly wrong.) Let's give it a try.”
