A reclaimed quarry and former landfill, Evergreen Brick Works is a marvel in urban landscape design. In 2010, it was reopened as a reimagining of what a green city space can be. Spend a day exploring the merging of past and present in the community garden, and check listings for special events (from craft sales to craft beer festivals), especially on weekends.
