The Jardin anglais (literally "English garden") is an urban park in Geneva, Switzerland, situated at the location of an ancient harbor and a wood. It marks the beginning of the Quai Gustave-Ador.

The park was created in 1855. In 1863 the building process of the Pont du Mont-Blanc changed the park to its actual form – a trapezoid/trapezium of 25430 m2.

The Park hosts the Le monument national and the L'horloge fleurie (or Flower clock), besides several pavilions, a sculpted bronze fountain by Alexis Andre and a coffeehouse.

Annually, it hosts the Geneva Christmas Market.

  • It's some flowers planted in a circle. Like, you won't miss it if you do anything in Geneva, but it's really not that interesting?

  • This is a nice urban park which frequently host various street festivals and activities. There is a good view of the lake and the mountains. If you are in Geneva, you really should come here at least once. At the same time, it isn't especially interesting or unique, so I wouldn't recommend coming here unless you are already in Geneva.
  • Lovely place to walk, do picnic, or just relax by the lake. All time favorite. But during the spring it is more special. It blooms with flowers and colorful trees. Enjoy the chirping of birds too. Have fun.
