Nice place to stop when at the border. Lots of flowers and arch and many other photo ops at this park. Good place to use the washroom while you're waiting to cross the border.

I think you can walk back and forth without issue as long as you stay in the park. We walked both sides and didnt have a problem. Im not sure about exchanging gifts due to restrictions.
