Volunteer Day!

Volunteer Day!

10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Everyone is welcome! Lunch will be provided, free of charge, for all volunteers.

Non-members who volunteer will not be charged any day fees. (please register at the office)

We really appreciate the multitude of people willing to give up their time to make Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park a better place. While there are many people volunteering all year, this is the day we set aside for a massive volunteer effort to get things ready for the season. We are told that it is also a fun day that many people look forward to. There will be projects suitable for all abilities and levels of ambition.

Earth Hour - This Saturday


Saturday March 27
8:30 – 9:30 p.m.


At Bare Oaks, we will turn off as many lights and other electrical devices as we can for Earth Hour.

Hundreds of millions of people around the world will turn off their lights for an hour to demand action on climate change. But that's just the beginning. Every hour, Canadians are taking small steps to lessen their impact on the environment. From hanging your clothes to dry to taking transit to work, those small steps add up to huge changes for the better.

If you are at Bare Oaks, please help us by turning off as many things as possible.

Even if you are not going to be at Bare Oaks, please participate by turning off lights and electrical devices wherever you are.

Update: roads, hot tub & water

The road to Beckett Circle is open
Things have dried up nicely this week so we have opened the roads. Please drive carefully. There are still soft spots. And the roads may have to be closed again if we get a bunch of rain.

Hot Tub
It is still running well and still hot with nobody using it. A Hydro One supervisor was here today. They are working on the stray voltage problem but everyone is stumped. We hope to have a Hydro One truck at the park on Monday to check voltages at the pole. In the meantime we all wait...  Feel free to ask for a tour if you want to see a beautiful working hot tub that you can't touch.  ...sigh...

Water
I was asked if we are going to turn on the water in Beckett Circle. I think we're getting fooled by the unseasonable weather. Right now, the average high is 3˚C and the average low is -8˚C. So the water is still going to have to wait a while!

Used trailers are moving fast

A few weeks ago, 3 used trailers were added to the Used Trailers for Sale page which meant that there were 4 for sale. Now there are only 2 left. 


So if you are interested in a used trailer, go to www.BareOaks.ca/Bare-Oaks/Used_Trailers.html for details. Currently, there is one small trailer without a site that has been very well maintained. There is also a larger trailer on a premium wooded lot.


So if you are interested in a trailer or a site at Bare Oaks, don't wait until the summer. There may not be any left.

Road closure


It's starting to feel like spring. The sunlight is beginning to regain that cheery warmth that's been missing all winter. Environment Canada is predicting Sun for this weekend with temperatures of  10ºC on Saturday and 12ºC on Sunday. But with all that warmth and sun, we're getting our yearly muddy road mess. So until the ground thaws and absorbs all that water or things dry up a bit, we are forced to close Beckett Circle to vehicles in order to prevent damage. Of course, everyone is welcome to walk around everywhere but rubber boots are definitely recommended!
