While on holiday (a roadtrip from Alberta!) this past summer (June 2016) I visited the Don Valley Brick Works with my mother and 4 year old son. I love that people have taken a broken down mine/industry site and turned it into something thriving. Visitors centre with historical information, art installations, garden shop, bike shop, and more but best of all was the Farmers Market with fantastic food vendors! We thoroughly enjoyed out visit (although parking was a bit of a issue) and if I lived in the area I would definitely visit regularly.

The Don Valley Brick Works, also known as Evergreen Brick Works, is a former quarry and industrial site located in the Don River valley in Toronto, Canada. The Don Valley Brick Works 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. Since the closure of the original factory, the quarry has been converted into a city park which includes a series of naturalized ponds, while 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.
