Writing for Frommer's, Charis Atlas Heelan identifies the "The World's 10 Best Cities for Parks."

Planning a trip this Summer? Frommer's helps you find the best places in the world's big cities to stop and smell the roses.

Picks include Barcelona and its Parc Guell, "a visually stunning combination of park and innovative architectural and sculptural forms, courtesy of Barcelona native and design genius Antoní Gaudí" and Melbourne, where Heelan suggests readers, "Visit the Royal Botanic Gardens for its 12,000-plus species of plants, trees and flowers, the romantic Treasury Gardens, the greenhouses of the Fitzroy Gardens, Birrarung Mar along the Yarra River, and Flagstaff Gardens. Spy black swans, and breathe in the scent of eucalyptus trees."
