Welcome to Dude Chilling Park, Vancouver
Vancouver is embracing the strange and lighthearted nickname that a local artist gave to one of its public spaces: Dude Chilling Park. The nickname came about after the artist installed a replica park sign in Vancouver’s Guelph Park, playing off of a wooden statue installed there resembling a person relaxing on the green. After initially removing the Dude Chilling Park sign back in 2012, Vancouver’s Park Board this week reinstalled it as a permanent piece of public art — though the park’s official name will stay the same.

These are some of the best, coolest, strangest, and most important Macs of the last three decades.
