Went to a family wedding at the park and it was incredibly beautiful. Lots of shade so you don't have to sit in the sun, plenty of room for ceremony seating as well as tables and a small outside dance floor. The trees and flowers are perfect for pictures. Easy to get to and plenty of parking!

This park is on the border between Canada and the USA. You can have a large family picnic here and walk to the big Arch that indicated the border between the 2 countries. The gardens are immaculate and a great spot for photos. Go in the summer and walk into the USA without a visa for a photo, then sit... More

The Peace Arch Park spans over the border between Washington state U.S. and Britsh Columbia, Canada. They have some of the best looking gardens I have seen. The main attraction in the park is the Peace Arch that stands right on the border. You can cross the border between the countries as long as you stay within the park.

An immaculately kept gardens and parks area, great for picnics or simply a place to unwind and enjoy the sunshine. Check out the fantastic floral displays of the US and Canadian flags and there's peace arch duty free for all your shopping needs

The Peace Arch State Park is on the border and the arch itself straddles the borderline. It's a fun thing for families or friends to stand on either side of the border and be in two countries. As long as you stay within the marked boundaries of Peace Arch Park, you don't need your passport to visit and technically stand... More

Stop by for sure even if it is just to walk the gorgeous grounds and take in the views. Be sure to stratal the border for kicks down by the Arch. But if its nice bring the BBQ and have a picnic, great spot. Bring lawn games, as there is plenty of room to play games and have fun. Enjoy!!!

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.
