You won’t see any sand around this castle, but that's ok, being at the beach is a state of mind. 

Take the Carrières bike path that runs parallel to the Canadian Pacific Railway lines and greet any conductors you see with your best “choo-choo!”

Then hop off for a breath of fresh air at the Père-Marquette Park community garden. 

And after your breath of fresh air, stop off for a bite at the Indian-fusion snack bar Le Super Qualité, (we hear it’s, uh, super good quality) or for a savoury tart or any other treat, at Automne bakery.
