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.

  • A lovely and well maintained garden, which would usually be peaceful, but we were lucky enough to catch it during a STREET FOOD FESTIVAL! We shoved a lot of food in our faces that day. Deep fried...

  • This flower clock is renowned as a main attraction in Geneva. Even before I knew anything about the city I knew of this clock. Keep your expectations reasonable and to a minimum. It is nice and very well maintained but not really something that is that noteworthy in person. Better to see it as a part of walking/train tours.
  • Beautiful gardens right next to Lake Geneva. At the edge of the garden is the famous Geneva Flower Clock which can also be seen from the road. The garden is well maintained and has plenty of benches to sit and relax. There is a drinking water fountain as well. Entrance to the garden and to the Flower Clock is free. Worth visiting and spending time here.
