"Imagine a verdant, tranquil sanctuary in the midst of a bustling, clanging urban centre. Located throughout the city, Halifax's Public Gardens, Fleming Park, Hemlock Raving, and Point Pleasant Park more than satisfy the imagination, they satiate the spirit. In 'Sanctuary : Halifax's Parks & Public Gardens', Bruce Armstrong's lifting prose and John Davis's poignant photographs, each with an acute sense of wonder and appreciation for nature, make this collaboration a memorable and tangible record of some of Halifax's finest retreats. Places too easily taken for granted are portrayed from a fresh and almost poetic perspective.

[...] This book will allow you to revisit their splendour, again and again." - from the dustjacket.
