Toronto, 25 May 2015 — The Aga Khan Park was inaugurated by the Honourable Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario, in the presence of Mawlana Hazar Imam. During the ceremony they unveiled a ceremonial plaque to mark the occasion.
Encompassing the Ismaili Centre, Toronto and the Aga Khan Museum, the greenspace features a formal chahar-bagh (four part) garden of reflecting pools, soft gravel and serviceberry trees. It draws together the two buildings, creating a new cultural hub in the city.
Despite persistent forecasts of clouds and rain, the ceremony took place under sunny blue skies. Guests were serenaded by musicians playing instruments from various parts of the world, as they gathered under a vast tent erected on the park’s grounds.
