  • Very nice green space. Amazing to have in the middle of the city. Though, the whole concept of the actual Brick Works itself seems a little boring and drab. There's not a whole lot to do there, unless the farmer's market is open. But even then, I don't think you would spend more than 45 minutes to 1 hour there, unless you went for a hike. And OMG....$4.00 per half hour + $0.25 service charge for parking? How could this qualify as family fun, when so many families could never afford to park? It's really not accessible by transit either. Perhaps I missed something?
  • Love the Saturday farmers market or passing through when I go biking on the bike trails. Great view from the top, especially during the summer or as the leaves change colour in the fall. Love the winding paths out back. Well done! Great art installations inside from time to time. Love this place! I love how the area was reclaimed and how it only rents to businesses that have green initiatives.
  • Evergreen Brick Works makes Toronto so much better. It is a great place to take kids during the summer for exposure to nature, play spaces, and some great food. The ice rink is great in the winter. It really has evolved into a gem since its inception.
  • Beautiful space, lovely restaurant and garden center. A bit too busy for my liking these days but I have been coming here since before it was utilized so heavily so I'm biased. There is a dog leash rule that no one follows which is unfortunate because the wildlife gets disturbed way more than it should but no one seems to care unfortunately
  • Lovely place to go and spend some time with family and friends. The farmer's market is great and the food vendor's area is very diverse with excellent offerings. The offered a great tour on Open Doors 2017. I hope they keep do it for upcoming years.
