Medicine Hat Hill neighbourhood.

The Hill

The Hill is one of the city’s original neighbourhoods, with the oldest areas developed by CP Rail upon its arrival in the area in the late 1800s. Fun fact: while the original CP neighbourhood was built parallel to the newly-completed rail line running Northwest through the city, later developments on The Hill were aligned to true north which makes the beloved original areas look slightly askew to the rest of the city.


Riverside is a small, well-established neighbourhood located along the South Saskatchewan River’s north bank. This is where you will find prestigious riverfront homes mixed with well-cared for homes of all sizes. A small neighbourhood commercial district is anchored by one of the city’s most popular and enduring cafes, the Zucchini Blossom.
