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

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.

This park marks the beginning of the Quai Gustave-Ador.

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 cafe.
