Manitoba nudists have a new place to enjoy their pastime. A piece of 80-acre land 10 km east of Libau has been purchased and has officially become Naturist Legacy, the legacy of Crocus Grove Sun Club, which for 40 years was Manitoba's premiere nudist club.... Nudism (also called naturism) 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 to human mental health. According to its website, Naturist Legacy believes in and supports the principle of providing a safe and secure environment where naturism suitable for all ages can be legally practiced in a natural and non-sexual setting. Modelled after a land trust (also known as a land conservancy), this new private non-profit corporation will both own and manage Naturist Legacy. The park will be open for use this summer, but John [Kundert] said it won't be until next year that actual facilities are available. Plans include the installation of bathrooms, a swimming pool, and eventually a clubhouse.
