The Evergreen Brick Works
Evergreen Brick Works, is an old industrial site located near the Don River valley. It operated for nearly 100 years and provided bricks used to construct many well-known Toronto landmarks, such as Casa Loma, Osgoode Hall, Massey Hall, and the Ontario Legislature. The original factory closed many years ago, and has recently been converted into a city park which includes a series of naturalized ponds. The buildings have been restored and opened as an environmentally focused community and cultural centre by Evergreen, a national charity dedicated to restoring nature in urban environments.
The last time I visited the area was six years ago, and my has it certainly changed. There were so many people out and about enjoying the warm weather that I was a tad overwhelmed. Salvation came in the form of a killer soy smoothie! Here are my photos from today’s journey.
