|A Walk in the Park on July 20, 2019 – how about a city adventure?
Our walk activity will take you right in the heart of our beautiful city of Toronto this time. Whether you have been
there or it will be your first time at the Evergreen Brickworks, you are sure to be spellbound by its simple natural
setting with CN Tower right in front of your eyes.
In 1984 when the once flourished Don Valley Brick Works closed down, the site was abandoned. Evergreen, a
national not-for-profit organization, transformed the damaged ecosystem and crumbling buildings into a global
showcase for green design, urban sustainability public space. National Geographic named it one of the world’s top
10 geo-tourism destinations.
The walk is scheduled on Saturday, July 20th, 2019, at 9:00 a.m. At this walk we will cover both the Don Valley
Evergreen Brick Works Park and the Western Quarry Garden. There is also a Saturday Farmer’s Market at the
Pavilion where you can shop fresh produce to your heart’s content after the walk and exploration of this place.
Once again we will meet at the Central Parking right by the Pavilions (there is also the East and West Parking).
The $6 for 2 hours and $8 for whole day parking fees help to deliver community programs.
One can also get there by TTC - the 28 Bayview South bus, and there is a Free Shuttle bus from Broadview Station,
check ebw.evergreen.ca. Alternately if there is enough interest, we can set up a car pool system from uptown in the
north. Those interested please contact Nancy Tang 647-881-4999, or Yvonne Chiu 647-530-6188 directly.
Look forward to seeing everyone on July 20 at the Evergreen Brickwork.
