Strathcona Island Area Upgrades

Construction Commencement Week of July 16, 2018

Post Date:07/09/2018 10:54 AM
Medicine Hat – A contractor working on behalf of the Parks and Recreation Department will commence work to enhance the parking lot at the boat launch, and create a viewpoint/picnic area, starting the week of July 16th.  Construction is expected to last approximately three weeks.  This work is part of an initiative to increase service levels to the South Saskatchewan River through the redevelopment of existing assets.

During construction of the parking lot, there will be no public access to the river from the boat launch.  The pathway leading to the boat launch will remain open until paving activities start, and will then be closed for several days once paving starts to ensure pedestrian safety. An alternate boat launch location is available Echo Dale Regional Park.  

The public is advised to obey all signage in the area and to remain a safe distance from any construction activities.  

The Parks and Recreation Department would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this time and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
