Terrasse-Vaudreuil is a small municipality on Île Perrot, just west of Montreal Island in Quebec, Canada. Attractions nearby include Le Faubourg de l'Île, the Terrasse-Vaudreuil baseball field, the soccer field, the municipal pool and POLYMOS, a styrofoam company that operates out of an area where gunpowder was produced during World War II. What started as a small cottage community has now evolved into miniature suburbia. Both entrances and exits of Terrasse-Vaudreuil are blocked by CP/CN train tracks, which has caused frustration in the past to residents. However, Terrasse does enjoy a lovely beach that looks out onto Dorion and the Taschereau Bridge.
