Medicine Hat, a vibrant community with most sunny days and nearly 65,000 people is located two and half-hours east of Calgary in the beautiful South Saskatchewan River valley. The city strives to achieve its vision to be a community of choice; a place where people choose to live, work and play. Outstanding opportunities, activities and events provide entertainment, recreation and culture for residents and visitors alike all year around. A beautiful new arena Canalta is home to the Western Hockey League’s Medicine Hat Tigers and serves as a showcase venue for national and international musicians and entertainers who visit the city. A recent expanded Family Leisure Centre offers a wave pool, diving boards, ice rink, fitness centre with a running track, field house, and gymnasium space. The Esplanade is home to a theatre, museum, art gallery and the city’s archives. Medicine Hat is also proud of the 115 kilometers of trail networks around the city, which is perfect for biking and hiking.
The city is expanding on the south side of the city in Southlands, Hamptons, Vista and Sammis areas mostly. There are wide choices ranging from townhomes, condos or single residency homes. In 2018 the average list price of single family homes is $300,000 and the average days on the market is around 70.
The city is rich in natural gas and oil, both of which have helped sustain Medicine Hat and its economy for over a century. Clay rich riverbanks supplied the pottery kilns and clay and brick manufactures for decades. The Historic Clay District continues to operate and is home to visiting artists and educational classes.
Medicine Hat celebrates diversity and encourages everyone to be a part of our welcoming and inclusive city. The community is a warm, vibrant, feel good place to live, fostering progress, innovation and entrepreneurship.
