The International Peace Garden is a Not-for-Profit organization operated by a sixteen-person Board of Directors. Directors representation is equally Canadian and American. Two of the sixteen board members are appointed by the Governor of North Dakota and the Premier of Manitoba. We are registered as a charitable organization in both Canada and the United States. The State of North Dakota and the Province of Manitoba provide equal funding to the garden with some assistance from the American and Canadian Federal Governments. Donations, sponsorship, programming, as well as retail and café revenues round out funding to the Garden.
The International Peace Garden gate is open year-round, although spring, summer, and fall are the best times to pay us a visit. You can always stop in at our administrative offices during business hours; or from October to May you may self-register at the entrance gate.
