Boissevain

Not far from Turtle Mountain and Turtle Mountain Provincial Park, Boissevain is a Canadian town in Manitoba near the North Dakota border. The town displays a number of wall murals as a tourist attraction and is notable for its proximity to the International Peace Garden, a short drive south on Highway 10.

The small town of about 1,500 people is located between Killarney and Deloraine on the east and west with Brandon in the north. The population of the surrounding area, within a 50 kilometre radius of the town, is about 15,000.

Boissevain formerly hosted the "International Turtle Derby" each summer. "Tommy the Turtle" is a 28-foot-tall, 10,000-lb statue that serves as an icon for both the Turtle Derby and the town as a whole.
