We ask that all site users respect the following guidelines:
- Users are responsible for the proper management of their own garbage and other waste materials.
- We adhere to a “Pack In, Pack Out” policy: whatever you bring with you to the site, you are expected to take with you when you leave.
- Visits to the site should take place during regular operating hours: Monday–Friday 9am–5pm, Saturday 8am–5pm, Sunday and Holidays 10am–5pm.
- Respect other users of the site, including Evergreen programming and special events.
- Please make contingency plans in case of rain. There is no extra indoor space available, and the area is susceptible to flooding. All visitors will be asked to evacuate the site immediately in the event of a flood situation.
- Please do not bring balloons. They tend to remain on site, and become an environmental hazard.
- Evergreen Brick Works is a public site on land managed by the City of Toronto, and is subject to city bylaws. Alcohol is not permitted in non-licensed or outdoor areas.
We encourage visitors to formally book Birthday Parties by contacting our Events department directly.

I heard there’s construction in the Kiln Building (CRH Gallery). How will this affect my event?
We are currently transforming the Kiln Building into a dynamic, carbon-neutral, year-round space. We are working hard on improving our most popular venues, and are very excited for the reveal in Spring 2018.
Both the CRH Gallery and Koerner Gardens will remain available throughout construction, and our Event Managers will openly communicate what to expect in the scope of the work, depending on the desired month of your upcoming event at Evergreen.
We appreciate our guests’ patience and understanding during this transition period. Learn more about the Kiln Building Redevelopment.
