Portion of Police Point Trail Washed Out – Access Restricted

Post Date:06/18/2020 12:02 PM

Medicine Hat – Recent intense rains, combined with open excavations for the sanitary sewer upgrades in the area of Parkview Close, have caused a portion of the Police Point trail system to collapse. Barricades are in place to block areas that are unpassable.

Pedestrians and cyclists may still access approximately 2 km of the trail from the east side near the Police Point Interpretive Centre, though will encounter a dead end and need to return the way they came.

Please obey all signage and do not attempt to pass around the washout area as slopes and banks are slippery and may be unstable due to construction.

The City of Medicine Hat will work to reconstruct the trail, though a timeline is uncertain at this early stage.

Motorists are reminded to proceed through Police Point Park cautiously, remain on paved surfaces only, and be alert to pedestrians.
