City of Toronto Policy on Group Use of Park Space

Please note that the Weston Family Quarry Garden and Don Valley Brick Works Park (the park, trails and ponds behind Evergreen Brick Works) is maintained by the City of Toronto. Access to this natural area is carefully managed in order to protect the sensitive and valuable ecosystem.

If you are visiting as a group, and would like to access the park trails on your own (i.e., outside of a tour or walk organized by Evergreen), you must contact the City of Toronto for approval prior to your arrival. You may be required to obtain a permit, and should allow six weeks to obtain approval. Contact greentoronto@toronto.ca for more information, or to request a permit.
