In the famous San Diego Balboa Park, there exists a hidden gem: the Inez Grant Parker Memorial Rose Garden. This is an impressive floral garden that displays around 1,600 roses of more than 130 varieties covering a big area full of color, beauty, and fragrance.
This garden has become a special place for those who are in love, as several marriage proposals have taken place among these beautiful flowers. This can be seen on Facebook posts on a page dedicated to the garden. In addition, this place is also highly regarded due to its magnificent landscape which is used for photoshoots.
The good news is that the garden has just been restored. According to information provided by Balboa Park:
