It’s winter, and it's such a great time to be out and about in Medicine Hat! We love getting out to enjoy the great weather. So here are some of our top parks to enjoy the snow.


Police Point Park
This park is a wonderful spot in winter & summer! In winter you can enjoy the trails all through the park...on foot, x-country skis, and snowshoes! Bring your own gear and explore this wonderful park at your own pace! Watch the geese out on the water, or try to find some of the resident deer. If you are lucky you might even see a porcupine!

Kin Coulee
Love to sled? Well after a fresh bit of snow this might be the best hill for sledding in Medicine Hat! With a set of stairs beside the big hill, and lights to keep you out there into the evening, it's one of the best ways to spend a snow day! Helmets are recommended! 

Central Park 
Three Words: Winter Disc Golf 
Okay we will add some more! If you haven’t played disc golf in the winter you really need to, and if you haven't played disc golf at all then you really really need to! It’s a great activity for all, and something you can do all year round! In addition to that, when the weather is right you can skate on the great little skating rink located in this park. With low boards, and lights into the evening, this is a great little ice sheet to enjoy during the winter.

Strathcona Island Park
First of all the berm trails are almost always cleared! So it makes those winter walks free of deep snow, and often totally clear! Thanks City of Medicine Hat! Not only are there the walking trails in this beautiful nature park - but there is also Crokicurl to play! All the things you need to play the game are there, so look up the rules, and head out for a round or two! Winter fun, here you come.

Outdoor Skating Rinks
Have you been skating on one of the outdoor rinks yet this year? Many of them have ice in and are all ready to go! Medicine Hat has many all around the city, find the closest one to you with this handy list on the City of Medicine Hat Website

Those are a few of our favourite parks and winter activities around Medicine Hat! Check them out while the snow is still here! Then let us know which one is your favourite!
