Python Toolbox Tool to execute other Tools

I would like to create a tool with which the user will be prompted to launch and open other tools within the same Python Toolbox. Is there a method to create this kind of interface tool launchpad? 

I am very familiar with Python tool parameters to show or hide parameters, but want to keep the existing toolset as-is and not combine them all into a long unwieldy one.

Thank you in advance!

I can't answer the specific question but have a look in C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro\Resources\ArcToolBox\Toolboxes\ where I think there may be examples of Python Toolboxes that run other tools.

We used ArcPro tasks to implement a workflow where the task user interface lead the user through running a sequence of custom and built-in tools.  I'm not sure if that works for you, but we did not have to change the existing tools at all.
