The Aga Khan Park opens in Toronto

This is the ninth park project of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, which has rebuilt and restored Islamic parks and gardens from Cairo to Kabul. It had its official opening on Monday afternoon, presided over by Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Aga Khan, spiritual leader of the world’s Ismaili Muslims. To get to that moment took more than 10 painstaking years that included scores of meetings and dozens of international trips.
