Brick WorksBrick Works A return visit to the Toronto Evergreen Brcikworks. From 1889 to the 1980s the Don Valley Brick Works was one of Canada’s pre-eminent brickyards. At its peak more than 43 million bricks a year were manufactured for use in the construction of homes and buildings across Canada. Many of Toronto’s most prominent buildings were made from Don Valley brick—Massey Hall and Old City Hall are two examples.

The site has been converted to a park, market and an environmental energy centre that is mixed in with it's unique heritage. The site has many photographic opportunities with an eclectic mix of graffiti, architecture, urban development and people watching. A highly recommended attraction to visit in the City of Toronto at 550 Bayview Avenue. See the updated gallery
