The park is not a "big deal." It is quite attractive, well kep - and you can observe the customs facilities of both countries close by. The value to me is to just spend some time meditating on how precious it is to have peace between our nations when peace so often is missing in our world.

We were in Birch Bay visiting and were taken to the Peace Arch State Park. A beautiful park with gorgeous flowers. The park is located at the USA - Canadian border at Blaine, Washington. When crossing the border take a break and visit the park for a relaxing beautiful experience.

We visited the park during an arts festival. The Festival was very well put together and there was a variety of vendors. The park is beautiful and worth the visit.

This was a beautifully landscaped monument that is something that you would not want to miss. If your here in the area, you want to stop. No fee if you park on 2nd st. And walk to the arch.

Great place for a Photo Op. Canadian and American flags made out of planted flowers. It is a lovely symbol of peace between two neighboring countries.

Being right on the border with Canada sure had a surreal feel to it, especially since there's no physical barrier separating the 2 nations: a few feet across the small ditch was 0 Avenue in Canada, with those houses lining it. TIP: while there's a pass to purchase should you park your car inside the Park, free parking can be... More

The park has great views of the harbor and you can see both the US city of Blaine and the Canadian city of White Rock. While in the park you can visit both side of the border without a passport--just leave on the same side of the border you entered. There are beautiful flower gardens on both sides and many... More
