You and your pooch could spend the whole weekend here. The grounds are beautiful and there are a handful of eateries to choose from, markets on on various weekends and other events such as exhibitions and music recitals.
There are plenty of things to rave about when it comes to Abbotsford Convent, including the Childrens’ Farm next door to the walking/bike trail that can lead you back up to the city. You can spend the day lounging around in one of the bars, sitting under the shade of a tree with a pint with your dog. (Poo bags are BYO)
