I love the Parnell Rose Garden at the edge of Dove Myer Robinson Park. It has over 4,500 rose bushes in every color you can imagine. When we stumbled upon this little treasure I was shocked that it was free!

Next to the rose garden is a gorgeous little cottage that is perfect for a wedding reception or other party. The cottage isn’t as small as it seems; there is room for 150 dinner guest or 300 for cocktails.

The Parnell neighborhood surrounding the garden is absolutely idealistic for a stroll. We walked to the downtown area which has lots of trendy restaurants and cute shops.
