The private park is open to the public, surrounding the Aga Khan Museum and Ismaili Centre on Wynford Drive.

In his remarks, the Aga Khan noted the park served as a link between the two buildings.

“The Aga Khan Park now connects those buildings in a special way – not just as a passageway or empty space between two structures, but as a work of art in its own right.”

The park features reflective pools and a formal, four-part garden.
