    Came here with friends for a hike/evening picnic, and it was lovely! Great place for a picnic from the lookout point :)  more »

    We often come here to get away from the city. We take one or both of the ravine trails (usually Moore Park Ravine) and come in one of the back entrances to the park area. Ponds are nice. It can be qui...  more »

    Went there, but to tell you the truth, I don't know what all the fuss is about. Nothing to really report. Probably won't be going back.  more »

    While the food was generally good, the steak and the lamb were both undercooked, our waiter didn't seems to be able to explain the slightly odd menu very well, and everything is definitely overpriced. $200+ for 2 adults and 2 kids. The stuffed pork loin and the fish & chips were both quite good though. Lots of birds around trying to sneak food from your plates if you sit outside. The deserts were very good, if slightly unusual (you have to enjoy candied lemon peel in everything, it seems.) While it made for an otherwise enjoyable evening meal, I would not be back at that price.

    A super cool spot for people looking for a great view of the city and easy walking trails. We went on the holiday Monday of the Canada Day long weekend and it wasnt too crowded with people. They have a cool restaurant with patio, a small farmers market and a bunch of food stalls offering crepes, sandwiches, fried pickles and a Beer truck with a nice selection of local craft beers. This place is great for families, romantic dates and single people looking to check out a new place in the city.

    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?

    Saturday farmers market has lots of good produce and food vendors so it's easy to spend an hour or two enjoying prepared food, shopping, and walking around the grounds. If you must drive there, get there before 9 in the warm months (market opens at 8) otherwise the parking is a zoo. Bring lots of cash.

    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.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
