Skaha Bluffs Park Watch Society is a registered non-profit society, incorporated September 11, 2015. The purpose of the society is to deter auto crime in the Skaha Bluffs parking lot and inform patrons of the potential of vehicle break-ins. The SBPWS observers will work hard to educate the public about safety in the parks, act as goodwill 'ambassadors' for the area and make patrons aware of the ecological importance of the area.

Major funding for the Park Watch program is made possible by the generous support of the Penticton mayor and council through municipal grants. All funds and donations go directly to provide employment for local individuals with barriers through the Penticton & Area Cooperative Enterprises.

Please consider making some small donations at the parking lot, your Loonie or Toonie helps fund this program and helps keep your vehicle and possessions safe.
