Forget Trump’s Border Wall. Let’s Build F.D.R.’s International Park

From the article:

There was a compelling precedent for President Roosevelt’s idea. In 1932, the United States and Canada joined Glacier National Park and Waterton Lakes National Park to form the world’s first international peace park, an important example globally of cross-border collaboration.

From research:

As Waterton Lakes National Park sits on the Canadian side of the border, you will need a valid U.S. passport, passport card, or NEXUS card to visit the park. The border crossing is small and generally very speedy; remember you’ll need your identification to cross back into the U.S. after your visit.

U.S. park passes are not valid in this Canadian park, although many Americans expect them to be. Even though Waterton-Glacier is an International Peace Park, no combined park pass is sold. To enter Waterton, you must purchase a separate Parks Canada day pass valid until 4pm the following day (C$4-8 pp, single-vehicle group C$20). Source

It's a nice idea, but there is still a border crossing in the Canada-version of what this wants to be. It's not just a free, open rance where people can wander about on either side for the hell of it.
