Strathcona Island Park access road closed on May 15 for flood protection training

Medicine Hat – Vehicle access into Strathcona Island Park will be closed during business hours on Wednesday, May 15 for important flood protection training.

Between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., vehicles will be unable to access the boat launch, Lovell McDonnell Field, Heritage Pavilion, and Strathcona Island Playground.

Safety and emergency preparedness is important to the City of Medicine Hat. Training will focus on the installation of a specialized flood protection system in the area known as a “flood wall.” This is standard annual procedural training and is not related to any perceived or impending threat. Emergency vehicles will be able to access the park during the closure.

The City of Medicine Hat thanks the public for their understanding during this annual training.
