Nude beaches – let’s talk about ’em because apparently, Calgary actually has not one, but two and we think that you need to know about it. Why? Because some of you want and deserve to let it all hang out if that’s how you feel most comfortable.
Located on the far west side of Weaslehead Flats, one of these spots, The Calgary Nude Beach has been recognized as such for two decades and has safely given those who practice nudism a place to be themselves and socialize with one another on hotter days.
The other, called Hidden Beach, can be found in Fish Creek Park but both require a bit of a hike to get to, so wear comfy shoes! For directions, you can visit this website here.
Now, as we mentioned before – these beaches are legal-ish.
Despite section 174 of the Criminal Code stating that public nudity is a no-no, CBC actually reported that the CNR came to an understanding with city law enforcement years ago and that they’re aware and okay with both beaches.
In closing – if you’re interested, go ahead and check them out, Calgary, or don’t! It’s your body, your choice – also, because some of you are some type of way, we feel it necessary to remind you that these places have existed forever and never affected you, so don’t let that change today. Skin is harmless, nasty comments are not.
Happy hangin’, folks!
