There are many sites and sounds to see and hear around Toronto. When the warmer weather finally arrives and you are looking for something fun to do with the family, why not head out to Riverdale Farm. While it is open all year long. it is nice to visit in late spring when the flowers are beginning to bloom.
Take a walk through the gates of the farm and experience a bit of history following the 7.5 acres along a scenic route. The location was bought by the City of Toronto in 1856 from John Scadding, an early settler in the late 1700s. His cabin has been relocated to the CNE grounds.
You will find various old buildings and farm animals along the way. The farm is a working farm and you will get to learn first hand about the animals and farming.
There are over 3 kilometres of trails to get you through the scenic views of the farm.
