What makes it a 'peace' park? How is that different from any other park?



In 1932, the United States and Canada joined together to create the world's first International Peace Park: Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.

At the time of inscription, the Peace Park commemorated the peace and goodwill our two nations share.

The Peace Park designation is symbolic and does not have any different management objectives. However, the park is also a joint UNESCO World Heritage site which does require joint management of the two parks.
