Is there any­where along the world’s long­est un­de­fended (but closed) border where peo­ple can meet legally?

Calgary Herald - - NAVIGATOR -

Why, yes, there is: Peace Arch Park. The re­cently re­opened park is be­tween Blaine, Wash., and Sur­rey, B.C. and is a shared ter­ri­tory for cit­i­zens of both coun­tries to visit. The south­ern half is owned by Washington State Parks, the north­ern by Bri­tish Columbia Provin­cial Parks. En­tries and ex­its are pa­trolled, but as long as vis­i­tors stay within the 42-acre area, they can roam freely.
