SUSPENDED - Weekend Nature Play | Children’s Garden

Follow the Valley Chimney to the best place in Toronto to explore, experience and play with nature.

Children's Garden at Evergreen Brick Works

Join us this season to explore our child-designed gathering spaces, green infrastructure, raised garden beds growing fruits and vegetables, and our climbing and water play features. All surrounded by the magic of the old brick factory.

Designed to showcase and make available to the public the many benefits of place based outdoor play and learning, the Children’s Garden offers play and stewardship-based opportunities for children and families of all ages.

Here, children and caregivers have the chance to engage in active, inclusive and hands-on activities while cultivating a lifelong stewardship ethic. It is truly a place like no other!
