Things to do in Medicine Hat

Since most things we post about on Medicine Hat Media are up and coming events or news articles, I thought a post about things to do in Medicine Hat all year-round would be a nice deviation. Here is a short compilation:

Medicine Hat Family Leisure Centre offers 4 pools, including a wave pool, lane swimming pool, and a deeper end to accommodate the three diving boards and rope swing. The pool also offers a water slide, steam room, adult hot tub, and a warmer pool for babies and younger children.

Shortgrass Library is a spacious library consisting of thousands of books, magazines, audio tapes and CD’s, spread over multiple floors. Also offered are meeting rooms that include room enough to seat people comfortably, Internet connections, projection screens and whiteboards. The library is not just used to sign out books, but also offers TV, VCR/DVD, overhead and slide projectors, and theater LCD projector rentals.

Medicine Hat Menus is a menu website that includes a very large assortment of restaurants in Medicine Hat. Their slogan “Decide before you dine” is nothing short of the truth, as with nearly 30 menu listings and 150+ restaurants listed you do not have to drive around wondering where to go. The website provides users with the address and phone number of any restaurant in its listing, and also provides menus for the restaurants who allow their menu to be posted online with the website, which is very handy when ordering. Coupled with Medicine Hat Menus, MH Restaurants is a sister-site and provides reviews for many restaurants in the city. Check them out to see what people have to say.

Downtown Medicine Hat is Medicine Hat’s website for its historical downtown. The website offers events going on in the city from its splash page.

YMCA – Everyone knows about the YMCA, as there is one in most larger towns and cities. Medicine Hat’s YMCA is no different. They offer many activities, including swimming, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, archery, and much more. There are two locations, one Downtown and one in Southridge, both with varying hours and some varying services.

The Esplanade has been in operation since 2005. The building includes Medicine Hat’s museum with a history of Medicine Hat dating back to the founding of the city, a performing arts theater, and an art gallery that features work from many well known artists, many of which are homegrown artists who were born and raised in the city. The Esplanade’s vision is “A place to celebrate, enjoy and learn about culture, heritage and the arts.” and they offer just that.

Galaxy Cinema is Medicine Hat’s premiere movie theater. With numerous big screens, comfy chairs and popcorn in hand, you are bound to have a good movie viewing experience.

Medicine Hat Lodge is a higher class hotel in Medicine Hat. Aside from simply having rooms to stay in, The Lodge also offers select rooms for honeymoons and meetings. There is many restaurants including The Jungle Cafe, which Vaughn wrote a review for here. Included in the building is a casino, a bar, a water park with water slides, a jacuzzi and steam room. The Lodge is also a main venue for many package promotions for the spa, golfing, romantic getaways and for the casino. Other events that are hosted include the Blood Donation Clinic.

Tourism Medicine Hat and Living In The Hat both offer large databases of information regarding Medicine Hat, including (but not specific to both), history of the city, accommodations provided by the city, a business directory, menu sections, trade show dates, and much more. Tourism Medicine Hat also includes a very up to date and chock-full events calendar, click here to check it out. Park System – The park system in Medicine Hat is extreme for its size. The system sports 1458 hectares of area and 92 kilometers of trail system to walk and bike through. Along the way, there are 82 playgrounds, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, basketball courts and volleyball courts, a water park, and almost all of them include picnic areas.
