Pari Nadimi Obituary, Tragedy Strikes Trinity Bellwoods Park: Art Gallery Owner Pari Nadimi Dies After Tree Branch Accident

Toronto, Canada – A somber cloud hangs over Trinity Bellwoods Park as the city mourns the loss of Pari Nadimi, a prominent art gallery owner, who tragically lost her life after a tree branch fell on her on July 25. According to a family friend, Ahab Abdel-Aziz, Pari Nadimi passed away at St. Michael’s Hospital due to a devastating brain injury sustained in the incident.

Pari Nadimi was the owner of the renowned Pari Nadimi Gallery on Niagara St., where she showcased “significant artists whose work is ambitious, challenging, and intellectually motivated.” Established in 1998, the gallery has presented over 200 solo and group exhibitions, leaving a significant impact on Toronto’s art scene.

The accident occurred around 5:15 p.m. in Trinity Bellwoods Park, prompting swift action from the city. The following day, the tree responsible for the tragic incident was entirely removed by city staff for further analysis. The city spokesperson stated that staff also cleared the area of all debris to ensure safety.

Toronto Police reported that an unidentified woman in her 60s was seriously injured and taken to the hospital. As no criminal charges were involved, no further updates were provided at the time.

Pari Nadimi’s passing has left her family and friends devastated. According to Madeline Donahue, another close family friend, Pari Nadimi was 71 years old and suffered an irreparable brain injury from the accident, leading to her passing on July 27. Originally born in Iran, Pari Nadimi immigrated to Canada and built a life surrounded by loved ones, including a brother and sister residing in Toronto, and a nephew living in Ottawa, all of whom are deeply affected by her untimely departure.

The tragic incident in Trinity Bellwoods Park is not the first of its kind. In 2016, a man in his 30s, originally from France, lost his life in a similar accident at the park. While trying to shield his wife, a falling tree branch claimed his life near the park’s entrance on Queen St. W. close to Strachan Ave. At the time, the couple was in Canada on a work permit.

The community joins together in grief and extends heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Pari Nadimi. Her contributions to the art world and her presence as a beloved gallery owner will be deeply missed. As authorities investigate the incident further, the city and park officials are working diligently to ensure the safety of all park visitors.

Trinity Bellwoods Park stands as a place of beauty and recreation, but these unfortunate incidents serve as a reminder of the importance of ongoing maintenance and vigilance to prevent such tragedies in the future. May Pari Nadimi’s memory be a lasting tribute to her passion for art and her impact on the artistic community.
