Evergreen Brick Works Young Welcome Centre

From http://ebw.evergreen.ca/

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.

In the 1990s the City and TRCA raised approximately $6 million to restore the site’s quarry as a park and natural area. The Don Valley Brick Works Park is awe-inspiring: a haven for wildlife and naturalists alike, it is at the heart of Toronto’s ravines. Opened in 1996, the park is managed by Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation. The Don Valley Brick Works Park is worth a visit in any season.

Here at the Young Welcome Centre people will orient themselves to the site, find out the day’s happenings and choose which part of the site to experience first. Tours will leave from here and the Centre will include exhibition space, heritage information as well as industrial artifacts including the John Price Brick Press and Foreman’s Shed.
