Hours: 8 a.m. - dusk

Peace Arch Historical State Park is a unique 19-acre day-use park that lies on the boundary between the United States and Canada. The Peace Arch monument sits on the border at the 49th parallel. A dramatic white arch rises from the green lawns and flowering gardens on the U.S.-Canada border at Blaine. Some may not realize that the international Peace Arch they pass on Interstate 5 is the principal feature in an iconic Washington Historical State Park devoted to peace and serenity. Take a stroll through the lush gardens. Stand on the lawn and take in the view of Point Roberts and Vancouver Island. Enjoy seasonal bursts of color from rhododendrons, azaleas, dahlias, hybrid tea roses and annual blooms. 

Peace Arch is unique among parks because it consists of two parks in two countries. The southern half of the park and the monument itself is owned by Washington State Parks and the northern half, by British Columbia Parks. The 67-foot concrete arch, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was constructed to honor the centennial of the treaties resulting from the War of 1812. These agreements between the U.S. and Britain established a peaceful, undefended border between the U.S. and Canada. 

79 unsheltered picnic tables, available first come, first serve.
