Belfast boasts more than 3,000 acres of well-tended, glorious parklands. The city's open spaces allow people to congregate, to relax and be entertained, to play and watch games, to escape the trappings of urban life by surrounding themselves with greenery and clean air - much as they did when the first public parks were opened.
Few people realise the determination and passion with which our city parks were created. In this handsomely illustrated history, published in partnership with Belfast City Council, Robert Scott pays tribute to the people whose vision established over fifty parks and playing fields for Belfast - truly a breath of fresh air.
