Lee Lifeson Art Park

On Saturday September 17, 2016, Toronto officially opened up one of its newest parks: Lee Lifeson Art Park. Named after the founding members of the iconic Canadian progressive rock band, Rush, the park is a celebration of the musical contributions of Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson.

It is now part of music folklore that Lee and Lifeson met in the Willowdale neighbourhood of the former city of North York.

On Saturday, all three members (Neil Peart was absent) received the key to the city by Toronto Mayor John Tory.
