Peach Arch Park to remain closed despite end of border restrictions

“It has been very confusing to many of us who use the park, who do a lot of border policy work,” Laurie Trautman, director of the Border Policy Research Institute at Western Washington University, said of the prolonged closure.

Even with the Canadian side closed, the park proved a massive draw over the two and a half years of border restrictions, and remains so for unvaccinated Canadians who still remain restricted from entering the U.S. because of American policy, Trautman said.
