Colin’s Dream Skate Park reopens after renovations

A popular skate park in Volusia County has reopened after several months of renovations.

Colin’s Dream Skate Park, which is located at 210 E Blue Springs Avenue in Orange City, is officially reopen to the public after closing in January.

The park previously closed for improvements due to a Community Development Block Grant that was approved by government officials.

The renovations include new decking that provides a space for people to watch, wait, and observe skaters, as well as a place for skaters to land.

New decking at Collins Skate Park in Orange City

Prior to the decking, erosion was a routine issue while visitors would stand and walk on the grass around the skate park.

The decking provides dedicated stairs to landings for visitors and patrons to use. It is also low enough so that skaters can perform rail tricks, according to park officials.

Located in Coleman Park, Colin’s Dream Skate Park is the realization of local residents and skateboarders who were looking for a safe place to skate and a way to honor the late Colin Anderson, a skateboarder who was killed at the age of 12 after he was hit by a pickup truck on U.S. 17-92.

The new decking for the park was approved last year by Orange City government officials.
