Evergreen Brickworks is a former industrial site that has become a love letter to the green movement. Download a self-guided tour brochure or pick one up at the welcome desk and trod your own path along 40 acres of wilderness. Breathtaking nature is surprisingly accessible from the city centre. National Geographic shortlisted this space as one of the world's top 10 geotourism hotspots. Evergreen Brickworks shows how we can transform urban spaces with the right intentions. The surrounding buildings uphold the principles of sustainable architecture and design. There are indoor plush gardens and a year-round farmer's market that is delightfully local. Bring a picnic and a bicycle for an amazing summer afternoon.
- Outdoor Activities: "Pay-what-you-can guided walks are offered on many weekends. Email the Evergreen Team to let them know your fitness level and hike expectations and they will let you know what trail seems tailor-made for you."
- Free Things to Do: "Although it is not as centrally located as other attractions, Evergreen Brickworks couldn't be easier to get to. There is even a free shuttlebus that departs from the parkette on Erindale Avenue just east of Broadview."
- Best for Outdoor Activities Because: Hike by beavers, turtles and wildlife and later replace those calories with a fantastic farm-to-table dinner.
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: Verdant gardens, striking heritage buildings and a whole lot of green space make you realize that the best things in life really are free.
