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.

  • This is a very beautiful garden, and its highlight is certainly the impressive and beautiful flower clock.

  • In this digital age, I don't think a master gardener would imaging a giant watch if he was starting now, but this big clock has probably been here for a long time. Very well maintained.

  • 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 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.
  • 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.
  • I love the garden but the flower clock is a big fuss for something that you can literally find in all big cities worldwide. Love the place anyway. I hope it'll soon be a spot to watch the fireworks again in a near future.
