International Peace Garden, Dunseith

#6 of 47 in Parks in North Dakota
The International Peace Garden Border Crossing is a crossing on the Canada–United States border connecting the towns of Boissevain, Manitoba and Dunseith, North Dakota. The border crossing is adjacent to the International Peace Garden, which was dedicated in 1932, just two years after this crossing was established as a port of entry.
The crossing is connected by U.S. Route 281 on the American side and Manitoba Highway 10 on the Canadian side. The entrance/exit to the Peace Garden is directly on the border. This allows visitors from either country to enter the park via US 281 or MB 10 without passing through customs, and they may move throughout the park (crossing the border at will) without restriction. However, the customs stations for Canada and the U.S. are located on the road just north and south (respectively) of the access drives for the garden, requiring all visitors – including those returning to the country from which they arrived – to go through the immigration procedures of their destination country upon leaving the garden.
International Peace Garden Airport, a public use airport for general aviation aircraft with no more than 15 passengers, is located to the east of the garden on the U.S. side of the border.

  • We spent a beautiful day here. It was a spur of the moment trip so we didn't have passports to get back into the USA but we used our driver licenses without incident. We had one with us who can't walk much but we still got to see all we wanted to see. I really liked the game warden museum and the succulents. We all had soup and salad at the restaurant. It was a delicious meal. Food and souvenirs are expensive. If we had planned better, we should have brought a picnic lunch as there are idyllic spots throughout the gardens to eat. The flowers were beautiful. The fountains gorgeous. The staff all well trained and polite. Nature trail on Canadian side not well maintained but still great. All together, It was well worth the 20$ entry fee.
  • Today was amazing that the peace garden. Seeing the succulent garden was amazing when it was below freezing outside. It was beautiful and relaxing. The rest the park even know it's not summer was beautiful and relaxing. The new executive director is carrying on the traditions of the park so well. We are very lucky to have this gym in our backyard.
