Since 1932, nestled on the U.S. and Canadian borders of North Dakota and Manitoba in a symbol of friendship, lies a "One of a Kind" International Peace Garden. Reflecting pools and dazzling colorful floral displays of over 150,000 flowers splash across the grounds of the Formal Garden's terraced walkways.
The 14-bell chime echoes faintly, as the length of the formal garden area is viewed from the upper terrace. In the distance, the 120-foot concrete Peace Tower, and the Peace Chapel can be seen at the end of the formal garden. Tourists ponder the beauty of the two floral displays of the American and Canadian Flags, the only two floral designs that remain the same each year. Presented to the Garden by the Japanese Government, seven Peace Poles in which, "May Peace Prevail" is written in twenty-eight different languages. Steel girders transported from the New York World Trade Center lie at rest at the 911 Memorial. Several buildings accommodate; conventions, bus tours, weddings, receptions, reunions, and socials of all types. Campgrounds for campers and RV's are set among Aspen and Oak Trees.
Hiking and auto tours, through verdant Turtle Mountain Forests and past the pristine waters of Lake Udall and Lake Storman, yields, as great a variety of birds, as found anywhere else in North America. Deer, moose, grouse, beaver and other game form a great marriage with the extensive variety of wild flowers, trees, and shrubs abundant in this, " Like No Other Place on Earth," Garden.
