Turner Park Landscape and Irrigation Upgrade project

Medicine Hat – Upgrades are coming to Turner Park that will increase the park’s accessibility and functionality while maintaining its beauty. The Turner Park Landscape and Irrigation Upgrade project is set to begin Monday, July 15. Turner Park will be closed during construction. This project is expected to continue into the fall.

This project will add a trail system to the park, install a shade sail near the playground, upgrade irrigation systems and establish alternative landscaping options. The new landscaping options will minimize the effort needed for weekly maintenance, and include areas intended to promote natural growth. This will enhance these green spaces while reducing water consumption. View the attached site plan for more information on these upgrades.

Supplemental watering will occur during construction to maintain the health of the existing trees in the area. Establishment of the newly planted areas will take time; the full benefits of these upgrades will not be seen until 2025.

Residents in the area are asked to please adhere to all barriers, construction fencing and signage in place during this project.

Families looking for other playgrounds to use during this project can access several nearby, including Taylor Place Park, Taylor Boulevard Park, Redwood Park and Medicine Hat Christian School.

The City of Medicine Hat would like to thank residents for their patience and understanding as these upgrades are completed.
