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.

  • Close to Lake Geneva. Amazing place to visit, has few restaurants also near by. Can take boat tour also as port is very close by.
  • Beautifull scenery and the fountain is amazing !! Only downside is the people here were incredibly rude and unwelcoming.
