When you’re visiting Toronto with your family, there are things on your checklist that you just have to experience! From activities with animals to locations where the kids can get rid of extra energy…there are options across the board.

Let’s Look at the Family Friendly Attractions in Toronto

Skyzone Trampoline

When you’re looking at indoor facilities that specialize in providing a safe and entertaining spot for your family to really have some fun, a great starting point is Skyzone Trampoline Park. From the young to the young-at-heart, you’ll be able to relive your fantasies of Dodgeball glory in addition to doing your best impression of a Cirque Du Soleil arial artist as you jump with your heart into the foam pits.

Toronto Zoo

Some of my favorite memories as a child involved family trips to the zoo, especially seeing animals that showed up on the tv screen. When you’re putting together a to-do plan in Toronto with your family, why not see over 5000 animals spread out over 710 acres?

The best part about the Toronto Zoo is the fact that you’re able to explore at your own pace at a facility that’s constantly evolving and growing to fit the visitor experience that is expected in today’s entertainment industry. This means that you’re going to be able to have repeatability, that many other museums/educational facilities may not offer.

Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada

In 2013, Toronto welcomed it’s latest attraction to the checklist of things to check out, as Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is here! In the subsequent years, the staff and facility has adapted to their home at the base of the CN Tower, adding experiences that take visitors to something more than just a basic aquarium. This is a spot that is a “Must See” for families, but you should definitely know that you won’t be alone in your visit…as it’s a hotspot for school groups, locals and tourists of all ages.

As a part of the CityPASS program, you’re able to get admission to 5 attractions during your vacation, so definitely do your research for budgetary savings and whether or not paying out of pocket is the best option.

Riverdale Farm

Going from a multi-million dollar aquarium to a community farm in the heart of Cabbagetown is a fun transition, but not everything in the city requires an admission fee. The Riverdale Farm is a 7.5 acre working farm, with horses, cows, goats, chickens and so much more! Families get a kick out of the way that their kids are introduced to the farm-life, especially getting up close with the animals!
