While strolling through Cabbagetown, make sure to visit Riverdale Farm, especially if you are traveling with young children. They love watching and interacting with the animals such as horses, pigs and sheep. The buildings reflect what farming was like during the pioneer days in the town of York. This main barn is a reproduction of one constructed in 1858. The 7.5 acre property was a zoo from 1888 until 1974. Admission to the Riverdale Farm is free.
