The park is on the border and you can wander back and forth on both the US and Canadian sides. It has nice gardens and the border markers are interesting. Great views of the ocean and islands.

I absolutely loved this park. Not only can you stand in two countries as one time, but it's interesting to learn the history of the arch and what it stands for.

I have heard of people getting married at/near the Peace Arch. I would not assume it is because the area is beautiful, it is because it is on the border of the US and Canada. While it may technically be a state park, it is...More
