    You can read about the cultural history of various Indigenous tribes in the area. Its great for photo ops, taking a break, letting the dog out and taking time for a picnic. Lots of parking. It is a landmark feature of Medicine Hat AB. You can also Ingress here.

    For something a bit different, check out their historical research room which contains many of the local history books of communities written by locals about locals and for the research buff who likes to now more than just what they can see.
    The gallery is always a good 20 minute walk and the community history displays are well done and interesting with excellent documentation. Go to a show there and enjoy great seating, meet locals and see some fine concerts, films and one man shows or bands. Saw the Banff Film Fest movies there this winter over 2 days. Awesome....Love the helpful volunteers there! Great underground parking just not for RV's.

    Our daughter and son in law got married at the top viewing centre. There is a dog walk, paved routes and great for biking, swimming, picnicking, outdoor dates, enjoying fishing, duck watching, paddle boarding. Life guards on site. Sand based beach and swimming hole with filtered water. Snack bar, washrooms and music at the beach. Playgrounds and lots of non plug in parking. Great for kite flying and e biking too. We go there spring to late fall.

    Winter: Tobboganning hill with climbing stairs with rails. You can find enough snow to do 1/2 or more of cross country skiing in the park.

    Summer: There always seems to be a baseball game during the week in the cooler early evening hours you can come watch. You can play beach volleyball or kids can play on a number of playground site equipment. There are lots of picnic sites and basketball hoops to play under. Great for walking and even better paved roads and lots of them for ebiking. You can ride under the highway through a tunnel to the climbing hill to the Saamis Teepee. Almost a seperate area within the park is there for birders who want to see orioles, chickadees, blue jays and whiskey jacks living in a natural water habitat. There is a totem carving. there are Leopard frogs to look for and lots of signage to explain natural areas in the park. Note: no smoking allowed in the park.

    Dogs: Its an onleash area but they do have a watering bowl outside the brick washroom building closest to the highway. You gotta watch out for the odd snake near the natural waterways.

    Perfect for family reunions for cookouts or group celebrations that are bbq related. There is a cookhouse for sudden rainy weather. Lots of washrooms and an outdoor bandshell.

    Despite being beside the highway its fairly quiet due to the large number of trees in the park absorbing the sound. Some music festivals are held. Check with the local visitors centres.

    Police Point is more of a back to nature with amenities. There are often natural events happening there you can participate in. We love to run our dog while we ebike the various trails there. You do have to watch out for the odd snake (rarely) and clean up after your pet but its very natural with trees, a branch of the river flowing nearby and natural gravel paths. Great for mountain biking! there are benches throughout and a washroom in the parking lot. And best of all its free!

    On our way to Maple Creek SK, we stopped by to get more information of a nearby attraction. The person who helped us (very friendly), helped clarify where we should go and wat we need to see. The advice and information we received literally saved us so much time. In the end we ended up where we wanted to be. Recommend not just a bathroom break, but also for the advice.

    Great place to sample local pottery,

    Cant complain - food court is good - fair number of stored including a coles book store. It seems book stores are increasingly hard to find.

    Went to Med Hat for a whl game. We stopped by the Canalta in the afternoon and were able to get in to watch some of the team practice. We also noticed they use the facility as a walking track when there are no events on.

    When we returned for the evening game, we were unsure of what the parking was as there are signs for premier seating but weren’t sure what that meant. Regardless we found parking elsewhere and it was a close walk. Bag/purse check upon entrance. Concessions were cheaper than Regina Brandt centre (large popcorn $5, poutine $6, cotton candy $4). Bathrooms were large and clean. Didn’t notice any wait time for use. Seating was easy to find and the big screen monitor was great quality. Overall a great facility.

    The Riverview Garden Centre or the Windmill as locals call it is an afternoon trip. You can grab ice cream or a coffee, check out the small petting zoo or the butterfly house, take 5 and sit in the fountain garden or enjoy being in the flowers as you walk from annuals to perennials to the outdoor trees and shrubs. Talk to the ladies who volunteer and are expert gardeners to learn more. Meet the parrot who live over by the houseplant section in a huge cage. Buy a quirky garden bench, ornament, chime, birdhouse or something from a variety of items such as boot planters, fairy garden steps, etc.. Take your time and buy some veggies to get back to healthy eating on your trip through the Hat. The Windmill is welcoming and allows you to stroll the indoor/outdoor grounds with no pressure to buy while allowing you to experience nature at its best.
