The Peace Garden is more than the Formal Gardens. The park has more than 100,000 visitors each year that enjoy the 2,339 acres that they can explore. The park offers picturesque picnic areas, modern campgrounds, hiking trails, bike paths and a wildlife refuge, where you are sure to spot deer, moose and other animals in the natural environment. You can canoe on the beautiful lake too.

Interpretive Center in the distance

One of the most surprising things was the Interpretive Center. This impressive building is directly across from the Sunken Garden and houses a restaurant, conservatory, retail store and horticulture library. The conservatory has over one thousand plants displayed in the 3,000 sq. foot conservatory. Mostly cactus and succulents live happily in this temperature controlled environment while in gets -45°F during winter.

campgrounds

We also check out the camping facilities available. There are 36 fully serviced private campsites that can accommodate small tents as well as large RV’s. Many of these sites are surrounded by Aspen & Oak Trees. All sites include a picnic table & firepit. There is also a large overflow primitive camping area.
