Evergreen Brick Works, a former clay quarry and the birthplace of many of Toronto’s bricks, is nestled in the Lower Don River watershed. Designed as a nature sanctuary, Brick Works is dedicated to healthy and diverse ecosystems. It’s also a heck of a lot of fun…
You can muck about in the
Children’s Garden on Saturdays and Sundays or go turtle-spotting in one of the marshland habitats, take a weekend tour or sign up for top-notch children’s camps, classes and home-school programming. There’s a Farmer’s Market on Saturday from 8am-1pm, Sun: 10am-3pm, daily scavenger hunts, learn-to-ride lessons for kids and bike rentals.
Drop-in on a Wednesday and get your hands dirty at the all-ages
Garden Circle, 9am-12pm and stay on for supper and live artist installations into the evening starting from July 5th.
Big news for ttc-ers! The 28 Bayview South bus heads straight to the Works from Davisville subway station and, as always, a free shuttle runs from Broadview station.
