The Brickworks are a great place to spend Saturday or Sunday morning - farmer's market, some tasty food from the vendors, and maybe a beer if you're feeling cheeky. Take a hike and enjoy nature. In the past couple years it has gotten increasingly popular with people who drive down, and so parking looks like it is usually at a premium. If you can, ride your bike. Especially with those sweet new bike lanes going in on Bayview imminently. DING DING!
A secluded place where you can to enjoy nature in the middle of Toronto. Bring your bike or just hike in the trails. You can also enjoy cold beer or wine in the brewery cafe.
Great space. It is wonderful place to take family as you can walk around the grounds. In the winter, they convert the inner courtyard to a skating rink. Bike accessible. Paid parking.
We've been coming here at least monthly for over 5 years. It's a great nature oasis in the middle of the city, a true gem. The year-round Saturday farmer's market is probably the best in the city. Just beware: parking is a nightmare. Either go very early, or take the bus, bike, hike, Uber, etc. Otherwise, paradoxically, you'll spend 20 minutes circling the parking lots wasting fuel in order to visit this eco-themed complex. The jury is out regarding whether the very recent addition of free valet parking helps or hurts the parking situation.
Love this place! The Saturday market is the best. So many great vendors offering fresh local produce, organic coffees, baked goods and the best waffles I've ever tried. The grounds are beautiful and it's no wonder that it is on National Geographic's top 10 geo-tourism spots & voted Best Wilderness Area by NowToronto.
