The celebration is a partnership between Washington State Parks, BC Parks, and the International Peace Arch Association.

 

Peace Arch Historical State Park and Peace Arch Provincial Park are jointly managed and maintained by Washington State and The Province of British Columbia. The historic park is one of the world's first International Peace Parks created on a boundary between nations.

THE GARDENS

At the heart of the park, the Peace Arch rises standing astride the U.S. Canada boundary. Each country featured floral flag gardens near the Arch. 

LOCATION

The parks are located on the U.S. Canada border between Blaine,  WA, and Douglas, BC.

 

Each park has an entrance and parking area located off of the highways that pass through the park.
