Paris Nudist Park

Parisians will soon be able to get closer to nature than ever before. Officials voted in favor of a plan to establish a nudist park on the outskirts of the French capital as early as next summer. Naturism is popular among Paris’ citizens but outside of a few select places, public nudity is strictly forbidden—carrying a penalty of €15,000 (approximately $17,000). But now nudists looking to bare it all will be able to frolic freely in a park that’s projected to be in two wooded areas and near a lake. But don’t worry about getting an unsolicited eyeful, deputy mayor Bruno Julliard stated that the park will be “in a regulated setting so that there is no threat to public order.”
