Be prepared: You have to hike it here on foot over a lush path, take a shuttle from Broadview subway station, or drive and pay for parking. Once the home of the city’s founding brick factory, it has been reinvented by the dynamic Evergreen foundation (national in scope; its business is to “green” cities) to include a farmer's market that runs year-round on Saturday mornings, a Sunday artisans market, a cafe and restaurant featuring local goods under the Cafe Belong moniker, marshlands, a beautiful park, and thoughtful exhibits that take advantage of the unique setting of age-old kilns—this is where Toronto’s signature red bricks were once formed. A taste of past and present, the Brick Works is proving to be one of the city’s most attractive locales for brilliant events. There are programs for families, parties for grown-ups, and much more.
