The ponds are flowing at Aga Khan Park, bringing stillness and calmness to our minds. The geese are beating their wings as they bathe in their favourite pond. Then, it is amazing to see them take off on the shortest and safest runway in the world with two majestic buildings — the Ismaili Centre and the Aga Khan Museum — built by Mawlana Hazar Imam, His Highness the Aga Khan, in full view! It is a wonderful sight. Intimacy and procreation are nature’s gift — the mallards and frogs are captured in their act, facing confrontations — yes, see the videos! Watch a tiny turtle walk to a pond of water, overcoming obstacles along the way. There are photos too to make the article complete.
I am providing a sample video, below, one of several I have included in Simergphotos where you will get a fuller taste of my extraordinary encounter with nature at Aga Khan Park and the exciting East Don Trail. This is a post you don’t want to miss! Show it to your children; they will love it.

Thank you Malik for the spectacular photos of the AKM park as well as previously posted photos of the ICT.
During summer and early fall, AKM has open air yoga sessions, and some time the geese fly in and wade in the pools, say hello to the yogis. Depending on the time of the month, the moon is visible in the morning sky with the rising sun in the East, and the Saskatoon berry trees at the pool side (Arzina Murji the yoga instructor introduced them to us) laden with fruit ready to be savored.
I cant wait for the AKM to resume the yoga sessions in these beautiful surroundings.
