Sẁiẁs Provincial Park (formerly Haynes Point Provincial Park) is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada, located on the west side of Osoyoos Lake in the town of Osoyoos, which is on the United States-Canada border at the southern end of the Okanagan region of British Columbia. Now approximately 38 ha. in size, the park was originally created in 1939 and has been decreased and then increased in size since then. The name was changed from Haynes Point to sẁiẁs, the original Okanagan (Syilx'tsn) name for the region, meaning "narrowing of the waters".
Haynes Point and adjacent Haynes Creek were named for John Carmichael Haynes (1831–1888). Haynes was "an Irishman who came to BC in 1858 and was police officer, customs officer, magistrate, assistant gold commissioner, government agent and county court judge in Similkameen, Osoyoos and Kootenay Districts for many years; member of the legislative council [of the Colony of British Columbia], 1864-66, rancher at Osoyoos, 1866-88, accumulating 22,000 acres. Generally known as Judge Haynes."
