Dove-Myer Robinson Park, more commonly known as the Parnell Rose Garden, is a park containing a rose garden in Parnell, Auckland, New Zealand. Some of the plants in the garden have been bred by internationally celebrated rose breeders and each year in November, the park is host to the Parnell Festival of Roses, which showcases New Zealand craft stalls, art exhibitions, music, strolling performers and thousands of roses.[1] The park is named after Dove-Myer Robinson, the longest-serving mayor of Auckland, who served for 18 years.

The 'white garden' is a popular venue for weddings. As of 2010, the park was home to the oldest manuka and the largest pohutukawa tree in Auckland.[2]
