Toronto / The Don Valley Brick Works

Located in the Don Valley, The Brick Works is an internationally significant natural and cultural heritage site located within the Don River watershed. The 16.5 (40.7 acre) site is open for public use, education and enjoyment.

The lower Don has held an important role in the region's history as a place of settlement, agriculture and industry. It became a productive industrial area, valuable for its employment and the goods and services created there. By the late 1800s, improved transportation and abundant resources like water and clay had attracted manufacturers of paper, bricks and beer.

Today, the buildings on site represent several different time periods in the history of the Brick Works. The Brick Works comprises industrial buildings, the Quarry Garden, a surrounding parkland and special geological features unique to the site.
