Peace Arch Historical State Park

Peace Arch Historical State Park

visited 20 November 2021

Peace Arch Historical State Park honors the peaceful relationship between the US and Canada. The arch itself was completed in 1921; the park and picnic grounds surrounding it on both sides followed in the 1930s. The principal highway between Seattle and Vancouver (I-5 / BC-99) straddles the Arch.

There is a sister park managed by British Columbia named Peace Arch Provincial Park that is currently closed due to COVID precautions.

The border here is almost surreal. The playground and most of the people here are in the US. The houses just beyond are in Canada.
Interesting site for a wedding!
