Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: Skaha Lake park

Dragon boat racer comments on Penticton’s Skaha Lake park

Skaha Lake park

This beautiful park offers outdoor fun for everyone.

“Located at the south end of Penticton, this 21-acre park offers a variety of year round recreational opportunities. Skaha Lake Park includes one of B.C.’s most beautiful sandy beaches; the red sand beach is great for sunbathing and wading in the warm waters of Skaha Lake.”

This is a quote from the City of Pentiction’s own website, and how true it is.

Please don’t allow development on this property. Once it’s developed it is gone forever to the public.

Sistership Calgary has been attending the dragon boat festival in Penticton for many years and we truly love the venue. Please keep it public.

Janet Biagioni
