‘Absolutely unique’ Toronto park to open with visit from Aga Khan | CTV News

“When His Highness started planning the site … He had in mind creating one space, a cultural campus that encompasses art, spirit and nature all in one place …

The religious leader chose Toronto as the home for the complex because of his “very close, long-standing relationship” with Canada. This long-term relationship (has) really culminated in these capital projects.

These [capital projects: Aga Khan Museum, Ismaili Centre, Toronto and their unifying Aga Khan Park] could have been built almost anywhere and yet His Highness chose Canada, and Toronto in particular.”

– Henry Kim, Aga Khan Museum CEO and Director
