A view of Riverdale Farm

Riverdale Farm is a 3.0 hectare (7.5 acres) municipally operated farm in the heart of Cabbagetown, an urban neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

From 1888 this was the site of the Riverdale Zoo. The zoo relocated to a much larger facility in Scarborough in 1974 and became known as the Toronto Zoo. In 1978, Riverdale Farm opened on the west bank of the Don River adjacent to Riverdale Park. The main barn was first constructed in 1858 in Markham and moved to the present site and rebuilt in 1977. The farm is open to the public all year-round. It specializes in pioneer breeds of farm animals that are hard to find on commercial farms. Animals at the farm include poultry, waterfowl, goats, sheep, pigs, cows, donkeys, and horses.
