The metamorphosis of Crocus Grove into Naturist Legacy Park
Publicity from my time as Naturist Legacy's president
One hour north-east of Winnipeg
and 20 minutes south-west of Lake Winnipeg, 69 members have taken on the
mammoth task of re-creating the naturist environment of the former Crocus
Grove in a new natural setting.
This summer members of Naturist Legacy Park have been hard at work building
their new home. Electricity was installed, at new water well drilled, and
sewage holding tanks put in the ground. Roads were cleared in the bush,
several hiking trails cut and maintained, and thousands of square feet
of their 80 acres of parkland cleared and groomed.
Twenty seasonal campsites were cleared with all but one now occupied.
A telephone line was trenched all the way from the highway, a pump house
has been built, and a washroom/shower building is nearing completion.
A deposit has been made on a new swimming pool to be installed next
spring. There will be a volleyball and bocce ball court. Most importantly,
everyone who wanted to move over from the old place has been moved, buildings
and all. And we are debt free! All this was accomplished through the phenomenal
financial and volunteer efforts of members.
We continue to rely on financial help to achieve our goals and have
created a unique pictorial method to help everyone understand our immediate
needs. Go to <http://www.naturistlegacy.org/catalogue_cad.html> for
a clear picture.
We look forward to greeting both current and new naturists to our new
home in the summer of 2012.

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.
