This is a favourite park since growing up in White Rock, next door. It's enormous, so you can choose which areas to enjoy. If you're having a picnic, there are lovely tables and nice scenery to the right as you are going toward the Blaine border crossing. If you want to enjoy the playground you need to get across to...

This is a nice park to see. You can spend as much time as you find necessary. We took a few minute walk around to see the arch, sculptures and flowers & landscaping. At the top of the USA side there is a playground for children. Really beautiful flowers. Park is definitely well maintained.

The gardens are beautiful and full of color. Trees and flowers are labeled for those curious about that. It's fun to be on the border with the freedom to enjoy the gardens, live music on weekends, and the bay.

The landscaping all around is so nice and the Peace Arch itself is a bit awe inspiring when you think about the great relation the US & Canada have together. After visiting the Peace Arch you can head up the grass hill to the east where there are picnic tables, bathrooms and even a kitchen that is used for meetings... More

Enjoyed all the flowers and scenery that is part of the park. The arch and surrounding plaques offered some good history of the border and area as well. Amazing that you can actually visit, see and enjoy this attraction right on the border.

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.

Straddling the border between Canada and the USA this park is pretty unique. Easy and free parking on the Canadian side and a large open area park with picnic tables and grill ports. A have to is to carefully cross traffic lined up to enter the USA and walk through the famed arch. On the extreme eastern side of the... More

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.
