“Well kept international attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Beautiful spot, Easy to get to from Canadian side, US side, not so much. Nice to see that two neighboring countries can be friends.

“Small pretty park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Beautifully landscaped with nice view of the bay. Easy to get to and easy to park. Close to Blaine and to White Rock (where you can get great fish and chips). Nice for family outings.

“who thinks to stop here!?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

It a really nice park right at the US Canada border. Most traffic just drives on through, or looks from their car while they are in line. Its a nice spot for a picnic, pretty well tended gardens, close to the Semiahmoo Bay, lots of space for kids to run around - and kind of novel to wander around at the 49th parallel.

“Lovely old-fashioned park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The grandkids love being photographed with one foot in the US and one foot in Canada when they stand at the international marker in the park. There are usually lines of cars waiting to cross the border, but the park is quiet with lovely flowers and bushes, a view of the Harbor and is set apart from the traffic so the feel is tranquil. Parking is adjacent and the US and Canadian neighborhoods have lovely houses reminiscent of more gracious times past.

“Town of Blaine is very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

The peach archpark is good but there's alot more in in Blaine. An excellnt black forrest steakhouse. The views of the ocean, the mountains, the 4th of july fireworks show is exellent and birch bay is close by with the state park. Camping,fishing,the views of the canadian mountians from birch bay park is excellent and mount baker is a short drive away.

I live hee so I go to all the polaces mentioned and I do recommend a vosit if you like the charm of a smaller town with the convinence of being right on the canadian border, the ocean and close to the cascade mountains and numerous parks. Fees aply if you go to the parks for a day or camping.
