Toronto's Riverdale Farm covers 7.5 scenic acres and is a hot spot for families. Along with the wooded areas, ponds and gardens, there are plenty of farm animals to visit. All this and more in the heart of downtown Toronto.

A great place for young and old to stroll and relax. Kids will love seeing farm animals up close and the ajacent park has lot of room for them to burn off energy. Quite a nice place for a free attraction.

After years of adult activities, becoming a grandma means revisiting all sites that are child friendly. This is a lovely farm and park for the little ones. Farm is not very big, but well maintained with healthy animals. Given that this is a free activity, I thought they did very well at the maintenance. There is a donation stand at... More

Great place to visit both in summer and winter. The park also is the home to the Cabbage Town festival in August where many artist show their talents

Love this little treasure in the middle of the city. There is a splash pad and small park near the entrance. Lovely trail for the kids to walk in nature. A nice little outing for the kids to see some animals and it's totally free!

Coming here and spending the morning is great fun. Entrance and parking is free!!! and because of that, I always "tip" the farm when I arrive. Such a tranquil little farm amidst such a busty part of the city. I also always bring a picnic to enjoy in the well-shaded park afterward. The wading pad water temperature outside the farm... More

It was raining the day we decided to visit this farm/park. There is lots of parking available and no entrance fees. Although the weather wasn’t that favorable, there were lots of people around with kids at the park/farm. It was fun running to the shed to shelter from the heavy rain, then going back out to see the rest of... More

If you have kids, this is a great place to visit. And it's free, although they do take donations and you will want to leave one for such a great visit! We spent a few hours here and in addition to the farm animals, we saw some great birds in the trails behind the farm. Very cute little farm to... More

My kids love Riverdale Farm, and so do I. It's completely free, but I always leave a donation because they rely on support to keep afloat. Kids love seeing the animals. The little food window is great, offering very low priced snacks. Especially love the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! Also the park in front of the farm has a splash... More

The kids love it! Not too much to see but it's free and if you are in the neighbourhood it's worth stopping by.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
