Echo Dale Regional Park is one of Medicine Hat’s most popular family destinations. Situated in the South Saskatchewan River valley with badlands views, two reservoirs provide swimming or watersport activities, including stand-up paddleboard, kayak or paddleboat rentals. The swimming is served by a cafeteria offering ice cream, snacks and even burgers and fries.
Echo Dale Farm is a well-preserved early pioneer settlement complete with a wooden house, barn, blacksmith shop, and former entry to an early-era coal mine. Together, the grounds provide a glimpse into early pioneer life on the prairies.
Easily accessible by foot or bike from Gas City Campground or by car via the well-travelled Holsom Road, Echo Dale Regional Park is a family favourite.
