Evergreen Brick Works, 550 Bayview Ave
Open to All Attendees
We will start at the Don Valley Brick Works, now commonly known as the Evergreen Brickworks, and see the old clay quarry and brick factory that operated between 1889 and 1984. From there we will travel west to one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Toronto – Corktown. Originally settled by working class immigrants in the early 1800’s. We will see how Corktown has transformed from a small working-class area into a bustling mixed-use community with emerging restaurants and retailers. From there, we will then meander through some of the last remaining industrial nodes and view the future area of the East Bayfront. From there, we will end at New City Hall. The run will be approximately be 6km (4 miles).
