Nudist History

WELCOME
My name is John Kundert. I'm a founder of Manitoba's only nudist park (Naturist Legacy Park) and the corporation that owns it (Naturist Legacy Inc.). Helping to create a non-profit corporation and helping to build a nudist park from the ground up were experiences of a lifetime. This digital scrapbook offers glimpses into those interesting years of my life and more. See the full content menu for access to a wide array of articles, documents, photographs and other material.

Here's a small sample of what you'll find in my scrapbook...

Determined Nudists Earn A New Beginning

Publicity from my time as Naturist Legacy's president

WINNIPEG, Manitoba — It has happened to clubs like ours before, and we should have seen it coming: a decades-old nudist club that didn't own our land. In early 2010, the worst happened. The owners of the campground where we'd been for 40 years unexpectedly took it textile...and we were suddenly homeless. This severe loss tested our club as never before, but we didn't let it destroy us. We devised an innovative recovery plan and immediately launched a land search that resulted in the purchase of new property just a few months later. Since then, we've literally had boots on the ground each and every day that the weather would allow us to work. Only the onset of the deep winter snow keeps us off the new land. We start up again where we left off each spring and are back into club "uniform" just as soon as the weather and temperatures will allow. Long, hard days working under the sun have rewarded many of us with the best all-over deep tans that we could have ever have hoped for. The development has been swift and sure, and the official grand opening weekend was held in July 2012. Now that we're open for business, we are officially known as Naturist Legacy Park....

One often hears about cars that go from zero to sixty in just a few seconds. Well, Naturist Legacy has gone from absolutely nothing to an operational nudist park in just two years. How did the small club do it?...

Adding rafters to Naturist Legacy Park's new clubhouse

A crew of several volunteers carried the 28 foot long rafters into the clubhouse one by one (see the plans). They would prop one rafter tail on top of a wall and then lift and prop the other tail on the opposing wall. It was then a simple matter of swinging the rafter upright with a rope and a long board used as a "pusher." I was in the rafters to pull and "catch" each truss as others pushed it from below. I nailed spacing strips at the peak and down about six feet on each side while other members nailed the ends of the rafters to the pre-marked top plates of the walls. By the end of the day, all 46 rafters — all 6,000 lbs. of them — were sitting on top of the walls. I loved how the building looked inside with the new rafters all in place. It had an almost cathedral-like feel to it!
