Can I bring my dog to the Peace Garden?
Yes, we love dogs! Just make sure to keep your furry friends on a leash and please clean up after them. Dogs are allowed throughout the Peace Garden but are not allowed in the café or The Conservatory due to safety issues. Dogs may be on the outdoor patio of the Café.
Do not ever leave your dogs unattended and do not let them approach other guests or pets unless they are welcomed to do so for the comfort and safety of all of our guests. The care and supervision of your pet is your sole responsibility. We do not provide any services or accommodations for pets or service animals. If your dog is found unattended, the local shelter may be contacted. If your dog excessively barks, growls or otherwise acts out of control, disruptive or is aggressive towards other pets or people, you may be asked to remove your dog from the Garden. If your dog becomes aggressive and harms a guest or staff member, authorities may be contacted and you will be responsible for any related legal or medical issues associated with the event.
Service Dogs are welcome under the The Service Animals Protection Act/Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) throughout any of our facilities including the café. A service animal is defined as any guide dog, signal dog or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. If you have a service dog, although it is not required, we ask that it be identified by a special collar or harness and we kindly ask that you carry proper identification paperwork for your service dog to aid our staff and visitors in identifying your service animal. If your service dog becomes aggressive or the animal’s behavior poses a direct threat to the health and safety of others you will be required to exclude your service animal from further interaction in the facility. Please note that you will still be able to enjoy the facilities but you will have to do so without the aid of your service animal.
Does the Peace Garden have an airport?
Yes, there is a Peace Garden Airport, however it is not affiliated with the International Peace Garden. It is located on the east side of HWY 281 near the Dunseith Port of Entry. It is a public airport with a 3000 foot runway rated for approximately 12,000 pounds. This public airport is free, with no cost to land and apron parking for both U.S. and Canadian pilots. The airport is overseen by the local U.S. Customs office located next door.
Pilots who choose to add the Peace Garden to their fly-in destination can park on the apron of their corresponding country and check in with customs before proceeding to the Peace Garden. Pedestrian passes are $15 per day or $40 per year. The Peace Garden cannot advise on FAA regulations or other flight-related information. Learn more
