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

Its a warm winter season but should the snow return the area surrounding Riverdale Farm is one of the best Toboggan Runs in all Toronto. A great place to take small kids on a winters day looking at ducks while you sip hot chocolate.

This small farm inside of downtown Toronto makes for a pretty nice visit, especially if combined with a walking tour of Carlton street by combining it with a visit to Allen Gardens.

Downtown
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

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

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