This 18-hectare park near Toronto's Danforth area is a delightful slice of the outdoors with a stunning view of Toronto's looming skyline. Considered a fantastic place to grab a picnic, watch the sunset and declare your undying love, it also works as well for the sports enthusiast to bring their game outside. With a running track, tennis courts, an ice rink and a ball diamond, there is no season that is safe from a little friendly competition. Immediately west of the park is the free Riverdale Farm gives visitors a glimpse of life on a 19th century Ontario farm. There are rare breed farm animals and very scenic environs that can be explored in between watching activities such as milk churned into butter and wool spun into yarn. From May to October, check out the farmer's market just outside of the main entrance.
- Daily 9am-5pm
- Outdoor Activities: "The farm is connected to Riverdale Park West. Make sure you go to the right side, as this is a lot of land to cover in one day."
- Best for Outdoor Activities Because: A working farm in the middle of the city gives the kids a free summer activity, with nearby tobogganing hills for winter cabin fever.
