Once a former quarry, Don Valley Brick Works Park is now a City of Toronto flagship natural environment park. It is considered a model for urban ecosystem planning given its extensive landscape restoration, re-naturalization, wetland re-establishment, and adaptive management.

Come and explore the park!
We have guided tours on select Saturdays from May to September. Email greentoronto@toronto.ca to learn more. If you prefer going on your own pace, enjoy a self-guided tour and read about the park’s past, present and future through educational signs. There is also an audio tour – call 416-39-BRICK to learn about the geological history of the area, before, during or after your trip.

Trails and boardwalks located within the quarry garden are connected at-grade to Evergreen Brick Works and parking lots. The trails are granular surface trails and are affacted by the weather. These trails are also connected to the Belt Line Trail via a paved ramp. Trails connecting the quarry gardens to the quarry ridge lookout are steep, due to the natural landscape.
