Five men were arrested for public nudity in Gatineau Park Wednesday in what police said is a preview of their actions next summer.

MRC des Collines said the men, ranging in age from 38 to 70 and from Ottawa, Arnprior and Vancouver, were found after complaints of naked people on a trail near Meech Lake.

Police said they had put up bilingual signs warning against public nudity, which they said attracts people who masturbate and makes the area unattractive.

The men were found on the first day police were making arrests for nudity. They were arrested, identified, escorted out of the park then released.

Police said themselves, the National Capital Commission and prosecutor's office are cracking down on nudity together, with the practice to continue next summer.
