It's pronounced slew.
Rondeau Provincial Park is a geomorpholic feature known as a crescentic cuspate sandspit.
It has been formed by the transport of sand and fine gravel by two converging currents along the Lake Erie shores.

Basically it is made of sandbars with the low areas between the bars being the sloughs.

Rondeau is a major spring migration hotspot for birds, with mid-May being the peak time.

Fishing, swimming,hiking and camping are some of the other activities at Rondeau.
