The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.

With just a fairly short journey you are out of the city and in this peaceful haven of nature. There are a number of lovely walks and we enjoyed walking along the boardwalk and seeing all the turtles. The cafe served very good lunches and there is a nice garden centre.

I was recommended to visit Evergreen Brickworks by friends and family when I visited Toronto. It’s a lovely way to get out of the city and getting a taste of nature without having to go too far. The extended park area allows you to explore far enough that you never really feel that it gets too crowded even on weekends. I went in the end of October and the fall foliage was perfect. There is also the farmers and food market which adds to the element of fun. I would definitely recommend spending a long afternoon here.

It is a beautiful place to walk or bike around. In winter time they have a lot of winter activities as well.

Best views of the city of Toronto and clearly taking care of the environment. Hills I use for running are excellent!

We went here on April 30th.
It was the first day they opened the outdoor market. The market is only opened on Saturdays from 9:00am-1:00pm. We got here at 9:30 and the parking lot was almost full. We paid $6 for parking. We went to the market and all the vendors were not there because it was the first day and it was raining. Not a lot of fruits and vegetables in season yet. There is a garden centre on the other side. There is a store that sells artwork, plants, crafts, honey, sauces. There’s a cafe in there and you can get a sandwich and coffee. They have lots of nature trails. We didn’t get to do it because it was raining. There is a dog park and bike trails. We actually got to see a beaver in a stream by the entrance. Apparently a 6 inch tooth of a prehistoric beaver was found on the property and you can see it on display in one of the buildings that also has the old machine used in the making of bricks The company was opened for over 100 years. Lots of history here. It’s a great place to visit on a nice day when you can go on the many nature trails.

I first visited the Brickworks in 2017 as a spring-time online dating meeting place. Nearly 6 years later, she and I still take regular walks through the old quarry in all seasons. I wrote an article with photos about the history of the Evergreen Brickworks, establishing a nature centre out of dirty industry. Google it on Harrowsmith magazine website. It launched me into a long-term personal photo documentary project about Toronto’s natural ravines with a friend who offers guided walks.

Great place to spend an afternoon with family in any season. It’s very dog friendly, with plenty of trails (must be leashed) and an off leash area. The walks are well maintained and it’s not busy on week days. You may see beavers on the lakes if you are lucky. The weekend markets are lovely, and the cafe Belong has amazing drinks, snacks and delicious (though not cheap) food. Book ahead for brunch at weekends.

Nice facility but lovely restored natural environment and walking trails connected to Rosedale and Moore Park. A great introduction to Toronto’s ravines and leafy neighborhoods.

In the early stages of the pandemic we went here often, and Sunday afternoon being very nice -- sunny and 15 -- we decided to pay the Brick Works another visit. The walks are nice, the fall colours are beautiful, and the views across the ponds are very pleasing. Unhappily we didn't reach the cafe until 4:05, when it had just closed. It should stay open until at least 5 pm.
