Irrigation Upgrades, Alternative Landscaping at Gilwell Park

Updated Project Timeline

Post Date:08/14/2020 10:52 AM

Medicine Hat – The Parks and Recreation Department will commence irrigation rehabilitation operations in Gilwell Park, beginning the second week of August.

The irrigation system requires a full rehabilitation to maintain the vegetation and green park space. The project also includes updating area landscaping with native and hardy grasses, which will help with cost-savings and watering.

To accommodate the ongoing construction, the park will be closed to the public. It is expected that the park amenities, including the disk golf course, will reopen in October. Leinweber Park will remain open and the 9-hole disk golf is available during construction.

The newly landscaped areas will remain closed to the public until 2021 while the grasses establish.

The City of Medicine Hat thanks residents for their patience as the necessary upgrades are completed to ensure safe and reliable infrastructure for years to come.
