Premier Kathleen Wynne joined His Highness the Aga Khan to officially open the new Aga Khan Park in North York Monday, May 25.
Landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic intended to recreate the sensory experience he felt while visiting traditional Islamic gardens in the Alhambra, Spain and Humayun’s tomb in Delhi
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.
