The Cairn


The cairn which still stands at the gate to the International Peace Garden was dedicated on July 14, 1932 – before the Nazi regime came to power in Germany. Hope prevailed. You can still feel this hope when you visit the International Peace Garden. You will experience this peace, regardless of why you come to visit.

This impressive building is directly across from the tastefully landscaped Sunken Garden and houses a restaurant, conservatory, retail store and horticulture library.

The Clock

Peace Gardens Clock

The Floral Clock, 18 feet in diameter, is a popular attraction at the International Peace Garden, and displays a unique floral design each year. The number of plants on the clock can range from 2,000 to 5,000, depending on the type of plant and design on the face of the clock.

Floral Flags


The stars and stripes of Old Glory and the majestic Maple Leaf can be seen in the floral flag plots, the only two floral designs at the International Peace Garden which remain the same each year.

Sunken Gardens


The Sunken Garden, located in the Formal Garden, displays a focal octagonal pond with two adjoining reflecting pools. The North Dakota Homemakers and the Manitoba Women’s Institute support the two reflecting pools.
