Riverdale Farm, Toronto

Riverdale Farm, Toronto

Toronto is a city filled with surprises and the Riverdale Farm is surely one of them. A quiet, tranquil hideout, no less than a countryside except the fact that it sits right at the heart of a buzzing metropolis, Riverdale is a perfect picnic retreat combined with scenic landscapes and an occasional bleat and bray of the farm’s residents.

These 7.5 acres of grasslands are sure to make for a day of complete fun and frolic for the entire family. The Riverdale Farm is not your typical modern day park where opinions and interests are split between which amusement ride is more thrilling and what arcade game is the most challenging. At the Riverdale Farm you get in touch with the simpler things in life, such as taking a long walk with your family, sitting under the sun and reaching out to the country side of things. Representing the rural farms in Ontario, the Riverdale offers you an experience of living a day in the midst of greenery, simplicity and tranquility, far away from the chaos of the city.

Located in the downtown community of Cabbagetown, the farm is open every day of the year from 9am to 5pm. Admission is free. So, feel free to come if you want to visit this humble abode in one of the busiest cities in Canada.
