Of the park, (Coffeys property broker Matt) D'Anvers says "there are no sexual overtones whatsoever" and that guests are "simply people who love to run around with no clothes on".
"There are quite a lot of families that go there."

On Friday night, a nude man jumped into a large tank at Ripley's Aquarium in Toronto for a brief swim with sand tiger sharks, sawfish, green sea turtles, green moray eels, and other fish. "The guy seemed totally relaxed... and like laughing," said one onlooker. Pretty ballsy. From CBC Toronto:
Security at the popular tourist attraction asked the man to leave shortly before 10:30 p.m. ET but he refused, said Jenifferjit Sidhu, a spokesperson for Toronto Police Service.
Instead, he swam to the edge of the enclosure and emerged from the tank before doing a backward flip into the water, she told CBC Toronto on Monday...
But before officers arrived, the man got out of the water, put on his clothes and left the aquarium. No marine animals were harmed during the stunt, Sidhu said.

A naked gentleman walking down the highway was stopped by a police officer in Marion County, FL.
"What's the deal, man? Why are you naked?" the police officer asks.
But rather than converse with the officer, the fellow walks off camera, screams, and beats up the police car.
According to the YouTube page:
Marion County deputies arrested 18-year-old Andrew Humphries on several criminal mischief charges after he ripped a door handle off a car parked at the Sheriff's Office and caused damage to a MCSO patrol car. Witnesses told troopers Humphries walked up to a car parked at the sheriff's office and pulled the door handle off a car while trying to open the door. Witnesses said Humphries then urinated on the car, which belongs to a MCSO deputy. The deputy estimated Humphries caused approximately $700 in damage to his car.
And according to clickorlando.com, Humphries was fleeing a car crash.

A hiker in Unterwössen, Germany called police after coming across a naked, disoriented man in the woods who refused any help. Turns out, the gentleman was a monk who had gone off camping and, according to the police report, ate some poisonous Belladonna berries that spurred a rather bad trip. From the Local:
He failed to find his way back to his tent, ending up instead wandering around aimlessly.
It remains a mystery how he came to be naked.

A bearded gentleman in Portland, Oregon who was upset about being "harassed by airport security" took off all of his clothes while in the TSA screening lane Tuesday evening. He was arrested, taken to jail, and held on $4,000 bail.
According to Portland police, John E. Brennan took off his clothes while going through airport screening at Portland International Airport just after 5:30 p.m. and stood naked before other passengers, including children.
Two screening lanes were closed as a result. Some passengers covered their eyes as well as their children's and retreated from the sight. But others laughed and began snapping photos.
(...) Said Brennan's father, also John Brennan, when reached by KATU News Tuesday night: "This is quite a shock. He hasn't been under any stress that I know of. He's never really under any stress. He works for a computer company in California. He does something with the Internet, which is just kind of mystical to me. This is quite a surprise."
Interviewed today by a Portland TV news program, Mr. Brennan (who has participated in Portland's Naked Bike Rides before) says he felt it was "the right thing to do." He is a frequent flyer who must travel often for his job (in San Jose, CA, I gather?), and he is tired of the TSA's junk-touching ways.
Oh, laugh all you want. And, sure, it's been done before. But this dude is my hero.
