Memorial Cairn

Memorial Cairn at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park

Most people by now have noticed the monument on the north side of Jarvis Pond that was lovingly built by Ulli, one of our members who is a very talented mason. The inspiration for the memorial cairn was the sudden and unexpected loss last year of Steve Cripps who was a very active member of the Bare Oaks community.

While we hope that all our members will live a very long life, we also recognize that we are all here temporarily. A memorial seemed like a perfect way to remember those who would always want to be here in spirit.

It is our hope that the monument will become a peaceful place to remember and reflect. Perhaps in the future, it will be further developed into a memorial garden.

If there is anyone that is connected to the park that you wish to remember, you can also commission a memorial plaque on the monument. Just contact the office for details.
