  • Great place to visit! Only been there during winter so I'm sure it's even more fun during Spring-Summer. Varied shops, farmers market (especially liked the Ontario cheeses!) hiking trail, food trucks, mini curling for the kids.
  • This place is fantastic. It is a great place to enjoy the farmers market and support local farmers in thr area. Lots of activities for the family. The facility has been retrofitted from a factory to a community centre and has preserved much of its rich history. I highly recommend this place for anyone who wishes to explore the facility.
  • The Brick Works is one of my favourite places in Toronto. I've cycled all the way there via from the Western end of the Kay Gardner Belt Line and through to Tommy Thompson Park. The winter skating here through the old buildings is so much fun. Art is everywhere and adds a wonderfully unique atmosphere to the place. The kid's space is terrific. The trails are interesting and beautiful. And the events here always well done.
  • In every season, this is a great place to go spend time, with the family or otherwise. Great walks, connects to all the core bike trails, has a super-fun children's garden (where one can get dirty and engaged in woodsiness), a tremendous farmers market (even bigger in the summer), a skating rink (in the winter) and more! I've also booked space here for a corporate offsite. So close to everywhere, easy to get to and a fantastic way to kill a few hours on a nice day.
  • Nice place to go for a walk, and the cafe now offers sit down meals. Gift shop seems a bit high-end, focused on fancy groceries - slight disconnect from the rest of the space. Will definitely go back.
