The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic provides an exciting opportunity to stay in Alberta and explore the local sights. Check out these upcoming, outdoor activities happening in Medicine Hat:

Hat, Hat Regatta

Kayakers, canoeists and stand up paddle boarders are invited to attend Medicine Hat Paddling Club’s last event of the season, the Hat, Hat Regatta. The event will take place on Saturday, September 26, 2020 and the group will paddle from the Echo Dale Park Boat Ramp, down river to the Strathcona Island Park Boat Ramp. According to the organizers, all paddlers are encouraged to wear colourful “Head Regalia” (hats) while they paddle. If you have a kayak, canoe, board, or raft and a hat - save the date for the Hat, Hat Regatta and head out onto the water!  

Paint in the Park  

On Wednesday, September 2, head out for a day painting in the park! Everyone is invited to join the Medicine Hat Interpretive Program for this event as part of their Wellness in Nature series. Watercolour painting supplies, cards and envelopes will be provided. Age 13 and up is recommended and participants are asked to bring their own lawn chair. Space is limited so phone the Nature Centre to reserve your spot.    

Echo Dale Park Loop  

Walking outside is a great way to practise social distancing and get in a daily dose of fresh air. The Echo Dale Regional Park is also open year-round and located east of Holsom Road on Highway 523. There are 7 km of trails around the park to enjoy, as well as a trail that leads to Medicine Hat.
