Located at the international boundary between the United States and Canada, Peace Arch Park consists of a State Park on the Washington side, and a Provincial Park on the British Columbia side. Park visitors are free to explore both parks without border formalities. Interstate 5 and BC 99 run through the center of the Park. The centerpiece is the Peace Arch, a 67 feet high memorial that was dedicated in 1921.
