Castle Frank Brook, which was also known as Brewery Creek or Severn Creek, rose in three small streams in the Dufferin & Lawrence area and flowed through the Cedarvale, Nordheimer, and Rosedale Valley Ravines, to enter the Don River south of the Prince Edward Viaduct.
It gets its name from Castle Frank, the summer residence of Sir John Graves, and Lady Simcoe, which they named for their son Francis. It was approximately twelve kilometres long and had another twelve kilometres in tributaries.
Castle Frank Brook is divided into several reaches in this account. For instance, Fairbank Reach starts in the Lawrence Avenue / Dufferin Street area and stretches through the former Cities of North York and York to Cedarvale Park near the community centre. Cedarvale Ravine Reach includes Cedarvale Park and the Cedarvale Ravine down to St. Clair Avenue West.
