The Jardin botanique de Cayenne (3 hectares) is a botanical garden located at the end of the Avenue Charles de Gaulle, adjacent to the university, in Cayenne, French Guiana. Although the Conseil Général de la Guyane states that the garden, formerly the Jardin du Roi (King's Garden), was established in 1879, there are earlier references to a botanical garden in Cayenne (e.g. Cosnard, 1828). It now contains a statue of politician Gaston Monnerville (1897-1991).
