International Peace Garden

World Peace is alive in northern North Dakota near Minot. The 2,339 acre International Peace Garden is situated along the United States and Canadian border. This unique park was established in 1932 as a symbol of peace and friendship. The park features 150,000 flowers, planted each year along with the beautiful 18-foot floral clock. Be sure to see the four, 120 foot peace towers – two in the United States and two in Canada.
