Discover some unique and interesting facts about Peace Arch Park, a U.S. port of entry along the world’s longest international land border. The Peace Arch represents “the lasting friendship between Canada and the United States.” Celebrating its 100th Anniversary, the Arch is 67 feet high and one of the few landmarks listed on the National Historic Registries of two different countries. And today, the Arch will stand with history as an uniter for families and friends separated by a border closed due to Covid-19. With the Canadian side of Peace Arch Park closed due to Covid, the 100th-anniversary celebrations are temporarily on hold. However, Centennial activities are being planned for 2022, including adding two new time capsules in the park as part of the commemorations.
