Peace Arch Park at the U.S.--Canada border is a beautiful spot to visit.  It is maintained with flower-
filled landscaping and has a dozen or so sculptures by a wide variety of artists, changed each year. This first of three pages has photos by Harry Pagels. The subsequent two pages have photos by Herb Lindberg, who was visiting Harry and Carol in Bellingham, WA, with wife Mary. We hope the beauty shown in these photos encourages you to visit the park yourselves.

The extent of the park and changing flowers and statues make it worthwhile to view photos from a previous visit in 2008.  In lieu of posting pictures from our visit in 2010,  I created a video slide show with photos from several years.  You can view this show by clicking in the box below appropriate to your type of computer.

Visits in 2003, 2007-2010

For many years we have visited Mary's family in Bellingham, WA, in early August. On five of these visits we drove up to the U.S./ Canada border to see Peace Arch Park, a beautiful place with floral displays and statue art which change each year. These video slides shows give a glimpse of this beauty.  If you have to view the YouTube version make sure you click on the gear in the control bar at the bottom of the picture and select the highest resolution available.

I love this driftwood statue of a moose. His snout is perfect.

It's snout is still perfect at this angle, and we see the legs.

This closer view shows that the designs on the "skin" include faces, mouths and teeth.
