International Peace Garden, Dunseith

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.

  • A fantastic time. My wife and I grew up around the IPG and went for a return for our one year anniversary. It was so wonderful being there again. We look forward to returning and one day bringing our kids here.
  • I visited the garden when I was a child and remember enjoying myself quite a bit. We even encountered a moose on the road nearby. My wife and I will be visiting my family in North Dakota this summer and a day trip to the garden is one of our must do's while we are there.
  • A wonderful park and garden, with sculptures, an indoor cactus garden and other items, right on the USA/Canada border. It's well worth a whole days visit. There are also several memorials within the park. There is a nice reasonably priced restaurant. Don't forget to carry the passport.
  • If you have not been here for a while, you need to go again. The formal gardens are spectacular. The Peace Chapel is always a welcome time for reflection. I encourage you to bring a picnic lunch as they have limited food and drink available. Camping is an option but pretty rustic compared to state camp grounds. Family had a blast bicycling around.
  • It was so fun thinking I was in 2 countries on where I was standing. The flowers were beautiful and it was fun learning the history. This is a good place to visit
