Hike to Evergreen Brick Works showcases Toronto green spaces

Our students are exploring some of Toronto’s gorgeous parks and ravines. On the morning of Saturday, Sept. 25, Ms. Haley Dinel led students on a hike from UCC that took them through the picturesque Mount Pleasant Cemetery, down the Moore Park Ravine to the Evergreen Brick Works. The five-kilometre hike took about 50 minutes and revealed the topography, flora and fauna that make Toronto such a wonderful place to live.

When arriving at the Brick Works, students beheld one of Toronto’s largest farmers’ markets, offering the widest variety of local and seasonal food in the city. The market is open year-round, connecting our urban dwelling boarders to local Ontario farmers and producers. It’s a wonderful spot to enjoy Saturday morning brunch.

On the recent hike, Ms. Dinel was joined by Iman Khalaji (Tehran, Iran), Ben van Meggelin (Switzerland), and Sufian Alawiye (Oshawa, Ontario).
