Nice park with a big white arch. Kind of cool to stand with one foot in the U.S. and one in Canada. Worth a stop.

I'm a Chinese national living in Canada. I do want to visit America but the VISA is not easy to get and costly. Then Peace Arch is a great American territory to visit without getting the VISA. It's a quite unique park. You can enjoy the peace between the two countries, and take some pictures right on the border, with... More

Lovely place to walk by the Mariana. Get close to nature and just plain beautiful views of the Bay. Surprising for Blaine..which has very little in the downtown other than services for Canadians wanting a PO Box. Don't know how they came up with such a lovely park.

This park is shared by Washington State and the Province of British Columbia. It includes some beautiful gardens and is a favorite photo spot for weddings on both sides of the border.

This is a lovely landscape park. Great for picnics. Beautiful flowers. On a clear day you can see the water. Sometimes they have an Artists fair here.

The views and the native flora are magnificent - step across the border and then hop back again. It's an instant international experience that can't be missed.

Good place to spend the afternoon. Very nice gardens and historical sites on the Canadian and US sides of the border. View of Boundary Bay. The only drawback is the Access Washington Fee to allow you to use one of the parking spaces. You could park off site and walk in, or travel to the Canadian side and park for... More

The Peace Arch is a perfect place for a long, scenic walk. Beautiful flowers everywhere and a splendid view of the bay, highlighted by the Arch itself. For a few months, there are even sculptures scattered throughout the park. Several picnic tables and a huge playground make this a nice place for a family to spend the day.

Besides the beautiful flowers, where else can you see such a unique and special monument as the Peace Arch? It is truly a place to celebrate the relationship between Canada and the USA.

It's a nice place to visit, but the traffic across the border is very bad Friday through Sunday. WA State Parks have a $10 parking fee per vehicle for one day or $30 for one year. It's free to park in Blaine and walk in.
