If you live in Downtown Toronto and don’t wanna go so far to enjoy a beautiful spot to practice sports and – of course – go biking, Riverdale is a great option. With two sides divided by the Lower Don River (between Cabbagetown to the West and Broadview Avenue to the East), the park has recreational fields for soccer, baseball, tennis courts and a running track.
I usually go to Riverdale Park West to take the Don River Trail, and there’s always people walking with their dogs or playing baseball over there. There’s also the Riverdale Farm, with barnyard and animals for children. But the East side of the park has more recreational fields and tracks, besides an amazing view of Downtown skyline.
