Walk to the Evergreen Brickworks Plus the Beltline Trail. Free Event

  • Jul 27, 2013 · 10:45 AM

EVERGREEN BRICKWORKS

Hi Everyone, We are going to re-visit the beautiful Evergreen Brickworks. This is an absolute natural gem hidden away right in the middle of the city. On Saturday, July 27th, let's begin to gather at 10:45 AM in front of the CIBC, at the northeast corner of Broadview and Danforth. At 11:15 AM sharp we'll begin our walk to the Evergreen Brickworks and a bit beyond on the Beltline Trail.  

We'll begin by walking west across the Prince Edward Viaduct, better known as the Bloor Street Viaduct. We will make our way to Castle Frank Rd. and then walk through a very nice neighborhood with nearby gardens that will take us to Milkman's Lane, a more wooded area.

Milkman's Lane becomes the Beltline Trail and we'll take that right to the Evergreen Brickworks. For those that wish to venture a little further along the Beltline, that's okay! There are no rules. Everyone can explore and go at their own pace. Let's enjoy the fresh air, a little nature and the exercise. Walking together is a terrific way to meet new friends and socialize.  

On the way back we can catch a shuttle bus that will take us right back where we started, at Broadview and Danforth. If you want to take the TTC the 28A bus will take you to Davisville Station. Let's all enjoy the afternoon together at The Brickworks!!

We look forward to seeing you there!!

      Now you're talking, re:beer/wine hahaha!! It's all good Alex, honestly decided last minute, it was enough to just get out of the house. Next time I'll just aim for the beginning of the meet time kwa kwa kwa!

    It was a great gathering of lively ladies and fine fellows,like a flight of geese swooping down onto the pond in the middle of the brickworks.

    Thank you Alex for organizing the walk...it gave me the motivation to go into and area I had been meaning to visit. Fun to have all those tasty food choices for lunch. After finding coffee, I went into the 'kiln' building...vast and fascinating, with boards explaining the various brick making processes. Continued further up the trail and back down to Castle Frank just as the rain was getting bothersome....time to put my feet up !

    A substantial walk and a wonderful visit to a bygone era. A group of friendly people was a bonus. The market filled with local produce (organic) was special and the food court introduced tasty foods I never had before. Worth a repeat visit every day of the week. Thank you Alex!

    Hi Alex, I was just checking out the Brickworks online , and noticed that there is a Farmer's Market on Saturday. There is also a food court, and Belong Cafe` which serves brunch :-) ...possible options ??

    • Alex S.

      Hi Grace, My experience down there with the group last year tells me to let everyone do their own thing. Once we arrive most will split up in different directions.

    Sorry but I double booked. I forgot that I have a meeting at 1pm so there's no time to do the hike as well. Next time for sure

    I am a new member,photo coming soon,how long will the walk take?thanks

    July 23, 2013

    • Alex S.

      Hi Esther, Welcome to our social group!! I'm guessing that the walk to the Brickworks will take about an hour. I think most will either take the shuttle bus or TTC bus back.

      July 23, 2013

  • Kevin D.

    first meet up in a long time so i am looking forward to it.

    Regrets again. Alex do you plan things for when I have plans? Maybe you don't like me?

    1 · July 21, 2013

    • Alex S.

      You finally figured it out, Fred. LOL
      I think that you have to stop planning so far ahead. :)
