Why You Should Visit the International Peace Garden
It is situated directly on the 49th parallel only a short distance from the Geographical Center of the North American continent. This is on the borders of both North Dakota in the United States and Manitoba in Canada. You should visit the International Peace Garden not only for it’s beauty, but for what it symbolizes, peace between nations.
The idea to form a garden in the middle of the North American continent began in the late 1920’s. Canada and the United States wanted to do something to symbolize the peace between two nations which had existed from the beginning.
Finally, in 1932, the International Peace Garden was formally dedicated. The Civilian Conservation Corps began building structures in the garden, some of which can still be found there today. This unique place is a must visit location that stands for peace not only between the US and Canada, but, in hopes, for all nations.
