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.

This is a cute little farm where you can see many different farm animals. The attraction isn't very big and you could probably see the entire place in 30 minutes if you were in a rush. It's also near a nice hiking trail and I'd recommend bringing your athletic shoes to go for a nice walk after and see the... More

We took our 16 month old son here and he had a great time looking at animals and running around. It's a small area, but it's well kept-up and the staff are really nice. There is also a great park nearby with a wading pool.

If you are a city kid never been to a farm this place might be OK but other than that it is pretty lame. It seems like yet another waste of our tax money.

We took our kid to Riverdale farm thinking it will be fun. She enjoyed the place also but not inside the farm but in the garden outside the farm where there is a mini sprinkler and pond area for kids to play in the water. The farm has very less animals, a horse, cow, sheep, goat and one or two... More

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

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
