Neighbourhood Guide: Riverdale

Kid-friendly Riverdale: Withrow Park

Head just past the Don Valley bridge and you’re in Riverdale. The neighbourhood is a prime spot for families, which means that virtually every shop is kid-friendly. Here are a few of our fave hang-out spots to spend an afternoon exploring.

Kid-friendly Riverdale: Rooster Coffee

Rooster Coffee House

Grab a really good latte and yummy cookies and muffins before you head to the park or the playground.

479 Broadview Avenue, Toronto

Withrow Park

This sprawling park has a playground, tennis courts,  ice rink, fire pit, weekly farmer’s market and more. A great kid-friendly Riverdale stop.

725 Logan Avenue, Toronto 

Kid-friendly Riverdale: Pizzeria Libretto

Pizzeria Libretto

Probably the city’s best pizza, and boasts a kids menu too!

550 Danforth Avenue, Toronto

Prohibition Gastropub

Have a local beer, watch a bit of a soccer game on the TVs, and the kids can choose something from the kids menu. It’s a little nicer than your average wipe-clean kid-friendly establishment.
