Situated south east of the South Saskatchewan River bank, this is one of Medicine Hat’s oldest neighbourhoods. With pockets of redevelopment, River Flats has begun to offer some newer housing options. Re-investment in this community is not a surprise because of its abundant beauty and amenities. The large riverside park of Strathcona is a cherished natural and landscaped park within the city. It features; trails, a ball diamond, splash park, playground, boat launch & picnic areas. The eastern edge of the community is bordered by Medicine Hat’s first industrial area, which is home to Medalta, a National Historic Clay District.
