Leave your pets at home, but bring the kids! Goats, pigs, and, of course, cows and horses in abundance with explanations on care and feeding. Riverdale Farm gives city kids a chance to see what life was like on a farm in the recent past.

This place does a great job of making you forget you're in the middle of one of the largest cities in North America; the nature is pristine, the farm is full of animals, and the place itself didn't seem overly crowded.

Not too many animals. Somewhat boring. The animal farms in Europe are so much better. Really disappointed.

Who knew there was such a rustic farm in the middle of Toronto? Great little spot to spend an hour with young kids. Nice that they've maintained the rustic feel of it. It's beautiful in the Spring with the cherry blossoms and lilacs. We really...More

A farm in the middle of this huge city? Indeed, and sweet for little ones. Little lambs, noisy moms guarding them, horses, cows and some fowl. A longer walk around the adjacent cemetery is easy and possible if desired. Good ice cream nearby too. Thank...More

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

It's a farm, not a petting zoo, but in some cases it's possible.
