  For the first time, the Bare Bistro has been opened through the winter. We kept that news relatively quiet because it was a test. Restaurant operations were serviced by the person in charge of the office and store. That meant that when a member or visitor wanted a meal or drink, the team member had to close the office and switch to the restaurant kitchen. It was not the fastest service and the menu had to be limited due to the low volume. But at least it was possible to have a drink, a snack, lunch or an early dinner by the fire inRead More →

We are very pleased to announce that Kevin Linkie is now the independent operator of the Bare Bistro at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park. Kevin has been a regular for many years.

Yesterday, the York Region Department of Health Inspector gave us the green light to announce that the pool is open!! The picture shows the first people to jump into the pool this year.

The weather forecast predicts temperatures as high as 29ºC! The Bare Bistro is back to summer hours so you can have a drink or a meal any day. Go to the restaurant’s websiteRead More →
