With your pass, you’ll ride around the city once to see just a few of the many historic and cultural landmarks. As always, children 12-and-under ride for free.
The Sunshine Trolley Tour now features the TROLLEY STORIES audio tour. Find your seat, scan a QR code, and enjoy stories told by the locals!
After meeting at the Visitor Information Centre, riders will then make their way to Kiwanis Central Park, where they can check out CHAINSAW ART BY LOCAL ARTIST MARINA COLE, as well as Moby Dick the Whale Slide.
After Kiwanis Central Park, riders will weave through Medicine Hat’s Historic Downtown before stopping near the Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre. Take your time to check out the Ewart-Duggan House, the World’s Largest Chess Set, the GIANT King Piece, or the Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre.
Next up is Medalta in the Historic Clay District, a key piece of the area’s history. After, riders will head to Strathcona Island Park, where Medicine Hat’s name came to be. While at Strathcona Island Park, riders can learn about Police Point Park, which sits just across the South Saskatchewan River.
Riders will begin their journey back to the Visitor Information Centre, with quick detours to check out River Road and Kin Coulee Park.
After the detours are over, riders will make one final stop at the Saamis Tepee to learn more about a significant piece of Indigenous history.
Join longtime Hatter Barry Finkelman on the Sunshine Trolley July 8, 15, 22 and 29 — and August 5, 19 and 26 for guided tours around Canada’s Sunniest City.
Can’t make a Saturday? No problem! Bill Cocks will be giving guided tours every Thursday in July and August!
Each stop will allow riders to get out and explore the area.
