We are delighted to announce our upcoming Photo Walk Tour at one of the classic natural and historical spaces in the city: Evergreen Brickworks. This will be a perfect walk for photographers and those who love a good urban hike. The meetup is co-presented with Tdot Shots. Please RSVP via our ticket site: tdot.com/events.
Nestled in the Don River Valley. Evergreen Brickworks is a sprawling multi-purpose site in a vast natural setting. Historically, the area was the site of a stone quarry and brick-making factory that provided bricks for iconic Toronto buildings like Casa Loma and Massey Hall. The factory was opened in 1889 by the Taylor brothers, who also ran Todmorden Mills, a paper mill along the Don River.
Photographers, hikers and city explorers can explore the venue and grounds which encompass a large area adjacent the Don Valley Parkway, in central Toronto. The site is accessible by nearby subways stations and public transit and walking from trails up and down the Don Valley.
