Great little walk.

We did see some deer on our walk. Bird life not so much. Some magpies and chickadees. This time of year, the weather was great. No gloves needed. They are having a backyard feeder... read more

We did see some deer on our walk. Bird life not so much. Some magpies and chickadees. This time of year, the weather was great. No gloves needed. They are having a backyard feeder watch within the Medicine Hat interpretive Center. Great place to find info on local birding.

I found this park depressing, being filled with many dead or dieing trees and not appealing...it wasn't scenic nor beautiful, rather the opposite... I think it is a poor reflection of a park and doesn't do the beautiful city of Medicine Hat justice like other municipal parks do...I wouldn't waste my time at this park when there are many other...

This park is a natural wonder. The mud cliffs are an icon in Medicine Hat. The cottonwood groves are natural art. The paths are breathtaking. Take it all in and appreciate its natural beauty.

This is a beautiful piece of nature inside the city. Great walking/riding trails (over 7 km). The interpretive centre is very helpful. This park is good for all seasons. I am hoping to enjoy some snowshoeing this winter. There are various programs as well.

PPP is a very well-kept, safe and subtly beautiful natural park on the banks of the South Sask. River. Birds aplenty in season. Great place for kids to explore, too.

This is a beautiful natural park right next to the city on the bend of the south Saskatchewan River. It has paved and gravel trails and some are quite long. The hiking is easy as it is flat but the terrain varies between wooded areas, areas with shrubs and some grassland. Wildlife is abundant. We saw cottontail rabbits and deer... More

It's great place to wander bout, to get a little exercise, look for wildlife. The shape of some of the cottonwoods is awesome.

We went to this park to see what it was all about. Some very interesting History if you are interested in the early days of Policing in Western Frontier. Nice trails.

If you plan to spend time in the Hat, Police Point Park is time well spent. There are >10k of trails, covering off several different forms of habitat and all touring the beautiful riverside. Evidence of the 2013 flood was still prominent throughout, which proved interesting in its own right.

As a local we usually go hear as a family nearly every week. It's wonderful that such a beautiful. And diverse park is right in the city. There are a number of different micro ecosystems in the park, much of it is great for strollers, bikes or wheelchairs. And most every week something is going on, from horse carriages to... More
