Julie-Dauth Park

This park was such a good little find. Hidden down quiet Rue Julie, past some colourful gardens and down a path; we found two great climbers from GameTime, AND a beautiful water view.

There are no fences, but both the road and water are down paths, so the playground itself is pretty self-contained.
We really, really liked the two climbers here. One seems to be more for older kids but has a wide staircase all the way up to the twirly slide and the telescope. The mini climbing wall is also toddler-friendly and my 2.5 year old was able to get up because the hand and foot holds are fatter than usual. There are some swinging pods, sky wheels to hang from, a vertical wall with footholds, and a wall of Gizmos that actually work! Things that spin, rattle, and shake. 
The smaller climber is right beside and curiously, does NOT have stairs. There are however some easy to climb stepping stones and two more challenging ladders including the Cloverleaf Climber. The monkey bars here are lower to the ground and my toddler LOVED the sunken tires because they allowed him to actually reach the bars and try swinging for the first time ever on his own. With his fat little tummy hanging out.  
So. Cute. I just love him 🙂
A daycare group came along and the little boys took polite turns on the monkey bars while saying “My turn?” 27,548 times. 
There are a couple of slides and the same gizmos and activities on one wall. 
Everything is on sand and needs a good weeding, I did a bit while I was there 😉
There are four baby and four big swings, some benches in the shade, and FIVE new-ish picnic tables under the trees. 
We followed the groomed path down to the water and were met with a gorgeous view of the river and Ile Bizard. It’s a good sized little area with boulders to sit on and lots of rocks to throw, but watch out for some pieces of broken bottles and lots of sharp mussel shells.
