Donat-Bouthillier Park

1-DSC08071

After driving around the whole island of Ile Perrot (which is super fun, you should try it!), we grabbed some hot chocolates, and crossed under the highway to Terrasse-Vaudreuil. (You can also access the town right across from Dairy Queen/Smoke Meat Pete.)
I tried to show the boys the house I almost bought in this area, back when I was 25, single, and fancy-free, but apparently it’s been so long that I couldn’t even remember which one it was. Anyhoo. 
So, surprise, surprise we stopped at a park instead. 

I *think* that this is the only park in this area, and it’s kind of got everything. Swimming pool and wading pool, soccer fields, pétanque, a dog park, pickle ball, tennis courts, beach volleyball, and a pretty fun playgrounds. 
There’s a LOT of stuff in this nicely shaded playground, including lots of retro-type climbing contraptions, which frankly, the kids liked better than the two newer play structures.
The toddler structure is in a bit of rough shape with a broken roof, and bare tic-tac-toe wheels. But the rest is pretty functional, though the boys refused to try out the yellow slide because they were nervous for their “man bits”. 
The larger play structure has a ton of rungs to swing from and climb, steps to cross, ladders and a slide. There’s also a newer climbing wall, baby and adult swings, and three cute spring riders. 

Things to note:
-The playground is open to most of the park (and the parking lot), but has some fencing along the road. 
-Mature trees offer good shade.
-For info on the swimming pool, pickle ball, tennis etc, you can check the city’s website HERE.
