The park is on the border and you can wander back and forth on both the US and Canadian sides. It has nice gardens and the border markers are interesting. Great views of the ocean and islands.

I absolutely loved this park. Not only can you stand in two countries as one time, but it's interesting to learn the history of the arch and what it stands for.

Samra, I'm not sure which country you reside in, but as a US Citizen with a US Passport, they have never stamped my passport when I have visited Canada. I have visited 3 times in the past few years.

Yes. Traveling north here is a Duty Free Store on second Street but after you purchase you pick up at the truck crossing as you head back to Canada. Traveling south there is a Duty Free Store too.
