Police Point Interpretive Centre Upgrade Project

Medicine Hat – The Police Point Interpretive Centre was built in 1982 and this will be the first major improvement since the original development.

The project will include upgrades to the front entrance and main interpretive area, windows, siding, the addition of a barrier free washroom to provide accessibility and the revival of the Prairie Viewpoint/seating area. These improvements will help enhance the overall experience to the 35,000 annual patrons that are reached by the Interpretive program.

Police Point Nature Centre staff will continue to work out of the building which will be open throughout construction with some minor inconveniences. Full access to the park and pathways will be maintained.

This project came together working with the Grasslands Naturalist Nature Club who received provincial grant funding through the “Community Facility Enhancement Program” and community donations through the Medicine Hat Accommodation Association and the Co-op Community Spaces initiative.

Construction is scheduled to start this spring and be substantially complete by years end.
