Paris: If getting naked in one of the world’s greatest cities sounds attractive, you’ll now be able to do it. Because France has now got its very own public nudist park in no other than its capital, Paris.
The Bois de Vincennes park is the culmination of years of lobbying by French nudists.There are signs warning people of the nudity and there is also a clearing which is the size of a football pitch.
The mayor’s office said the nudist park is ‘part of an open-minded vision for the use of Parisian public spaces’. Julien Claude-Penegry of the Paris Naturists Association said: ‘It’s a true joy, it’s one more freedom for naturists.
‘It shows the city’s broad-mindedness and will help change people’s attitudes toward nudity, toward our values and our respect for nature. Everyday until October 15 the park will be open from 8am to 7.30pm. There is strictly no exhibitionism or voyeurism allowed and a charter of ‘good behaviour’ will be displayed.
