This is a major piece of our history and should not be missed. Visit the many rooms of clay products made in this very beautiful factory. Experience the Thursday evening market with something for everyone including a bite to eat .Take a tour of how the clay was mined and processed and turned into so many day to day products. This is an absolutely informative and learning experience for all ages.

Every time our family uses this spacious park, I am thankful for the foresight our city fathers had back in the day to create a park in this beautiful creek-side location. There are several separate 'loops' or areas where you can go to select a picnic site, and lots of wide open spaces to play big game. Most of the sites have a permanent fire pit and picnic table so it is a great place to bring the kids for a hot-dog roast if you don't have your own fire pit.
The picnic areas are large, so you can easily gather several families or a large group at one site, without interrupting others. Or if your group is large and you are planning a special event, there are some locations that you can reserve with the city.
There are activities for all ages. There are several Playgrounds scattered through out the park, a beach volleyball site and a Little League baseball diamond. Kids enjoy walking along the creek and playing on the many Bridges. With all of the trees and shady spots available, if nothing else, it is a great place to take a walk.
In addition, there are many festivals, 'walks' and 'runs' that call this park home, making it such a valuable part of life in Medicine Hat.

This attraction is easy to find a short distance off the highway. The storyboards were quite cryptic but the structure itself is lovely. The site is well maintained (irrespective of the dog messes here and there) and quite scenic. 20 minute stop, max.

We started out for a walk in Kin Coulee Park which is absolutely lovely but not quite we what we were looking for. Drove to Police Point Park and had a great walk. Paved and gravel trails meandering through the trees, so peaceful and fragrant, away from the hustle and bustle. A nice start to our day.

We took the grandkids to the Butterfly house at the Windmill Garden Centre in Medicine Hat ,AB. Simply amazing, they had just released a bunch of butterflies that morning so the place was alive with them flying everywhere! The kids loved it. They just sat & waited for the butterflies to come sit on them. The kids were so thrilled! Best day ever. Ages 5 to 12 they enjoyed & even had moments of stillness! Doesn't get any better than that.

Hidden Valley is easily accessable from the Trans Canada Highway and is a trip worth while if you like to Ski and Snowboard with out having to travel for hours and pay the traditionally high prices of the more National and Internationally known establishments (Banff/Lake Louise et al)...Hidden Valley has numerous well groomed runs for all calibre of skiers, the green, blue and one could even be construed as a pseudo-black...the Ski Lodge is nicely equipped and can fit anyone needing assistance with instruction or equipment, and the après ski is a lovely place for relaxing and enjoying the scenery and those actively skiing away their day...it is close to Elkwater where one can stay in comfortable lodgings and enjoy tasteful meals provided by the various establishments. Enjoy the serenity of the valley and you will enjoy it's Hidden treasures.
