Giving Peace a Chance Since 1932

North Dakota - International Peace Garden

Notes: The International Peace Garden, established in 1932, is 3.65 sq. mile (9.46 sq. km.) park spanning the border between North Dakota, USA, and Manitoba, Canada.  Not surprisingly, it was established as a symbol of peace between the two countries.  In this photo, the tower on the left is in the USA, and the tower on the right is in Canada.  You can tell which country is which by the triangular-shaped flower gardens in the middle of the photo.  The park plants over 150,000 flowers every year. In addition, there is a floral clock, a 14-bell carillon tower, and some of the World Trade Center remains on display in the park.
