About us

The International Peace Garden was founded in 1932 by a group of visionaries aiming to establish a place dedicated to the ideals of peace and friendship between nations. Located near the geographic center of North America, the International Peace Garden sits on the Manitoba/North Dakota border and commemorates the long-standing peace between the United States and Canada. Today, the Peace Garden grounds span more than 2,400 acres including forests, trails, lakes, manicured gardens, conservatories, campgrounds, and more.
