Other notable public proposal venues can be against a nice outdoor backdrop such as a calming sunset at the beach or at popular tourist attractions. Many couples would love to be proposed as scenic places such that the moment would both capture the aesthetic beauty of the background as well as the immerse joy from the proposal.
However, do take note that public proposals have its own risk of failing as well – in most instances being a stressful situation for the partner to feel compiled and pressured into saying “ yes” amidst the hopeful crowd. You would want to AVOID cases of him/her being forced from the cheers of the crowd,

These kind of proposals is all about privacy, exclusivity and most importantly undisturbed space for the partner to bask in and decide one’s options in the realms of the secluded space.

If she loves the beach, an ideal proposal could be bringing her out on a romantic beach date ; if she loves family time, you could arrange for a nice family dinner and games night followed by surprising her with the proposal. If your partner doesn’t like public attention, then try to refrain from creating a public proposal for her and make her feel out of place/ not in her best fit.
The key is always understanding, knowing your partner best as the potential lifetime partner and using that to give one the best proposal ever.
