The Peace Towers: two are in the United States and two are in Canada
The International Peace Garden is a 3.65 sq. mi. (9.46 km²) park located on the international border between Canadamarker and the United Statesmarker, in the state of North Dakotamarker and the province of Manitobamarker. Established on July 14, 1932, the park plants over 150,000 flowers each year. Main features of the garden include an 18-foot (5.5-m) floral clock display, fountains, a chime, and twin 120 foot (37 m) concrete towers straddling the border with a peace chapel at their base. The chapel walls are inscribed with notable quotes about peace.

The Arma Sifton bells is a chime of 14 bells cast by Gillett & Johnston bellfounders. The bells were a gift from Central United Church of Brandon, Manitobamarker, in 1972. The tower was supplied by North Dakota Veterans and dedicated in 1976.

Some building remains of the World Trade Centermarker attacks of September 11, 2001 have been placed in part of the garden.

Located at the garden is the North American Game Warden Museummarker.

The park is located north of Dunseith, North Dakotamarker at the northern terminus of US 281 in northwestern Rolette Countymarker, and adjacent to the southeast corner of Turtle Mountain Provincial Parkmarker in the Rural Municipality of Mortonmarker, south of Boissevain, Manitobamarker on MB 10. It is not necessary to go through customs to access the park, as the only access road is located on the international boundary between the American and Canadian customs stations. Visitors must pass through one of these customs stations after exiting the park.

The Peace Garden hosts two youth camps every summer, the International Music Camp and the Legion Athletic Camp.

The state of North Dakotamarker has as one of its nicknames The Peace Garden Statemarker, and places this motto on its license plates.
