I designed our new swimming pool's splash deck prior to obtaining a building permit from the RM of Brokenhead (see also the Pool Plan View). Dimensions for the splash deck surface were compliant with Manitoba Health's swimming pool regulations. We began building this new and unique structure in early June. I hand selected and hauled all of the treated lumber from Winnipeg to Naturist Legacy Park. The splash deck was a geometric puzzle! The pool was 33 feet in diameter. Once I and a fellow director had calculated all the angles and established all the measurements for each segment, we were able to build a template. Seventeen more segments just like the first were built over the next few days, with two segments slightly modified to accommodate the pool's skimmers. Each segment rested on beams that were supported on posts at one end (next to the pool) and flat concrete blocks at the other end. Deck boards were screwed to each segment's frame in a sunburst pattern. Each of the eighteen splash deck segments was independent of its neighbours and could be easily removed for access to pool plumbing if required. Sturdy steps were made of treated 2x4's on edge.

John Kundert's Naturist Legacy Inc. / Naturist Legacy Park Scrapbook is relevant to Manitoba naturists, Manitoba naturism, Manitoba nudists and Manitoba nudism. Naturism (also called nudism) is the practice of going without clothing in social settings (generally in mixed-gender groups of all ages) in the belief that doing so is beneficial.
