The Aga Khan joined Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne for the opening of a new garden retreat in the heart of Toronto.

The 6.8 hectare park is located just off the Don Valley Parkway, a major municipal expressway. The park was designed by landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic, and was inspired by traditional Persian and Mughal gardens.

"What we have here is an absolutely unique park here in Toronto," Aga Khan Museum Director Henry Kim told CTV's Canada AM on Monday.
