It was a nice, huge garden with many different types of trees and flowers, ponds and sculptures. I wish that they would clean it regularly and take care of it, since this garden has so much potential.

An oasis of peace and tranquillity within the hustle and bustle of city life, outstanding central section of the park with tall palm trees, water feature and well maintained lawn with beautiful turquoise blue waters of the Mediterranean as back drop.

Jardin d'essai is a super place to go and just wander around and hang out. The shade of the trees is nice on a hot day and there are lots of benches around where you can sit and read or just watch the people go by.

A wonderful place to visit in Algiers. Near the Metro station and the Sofitel Hotel. We have passed an amazing time there. neally 4 hours or more. the restaurant is average but you don't have the choice there is only one. The Trees are just unique. I appreciated more the french garden than the english one.

Close to the Sofitel where I was staying. Enjoyable afternoon stroll and lunch at the restaurant. Reasonable entrance fee. Good for photos of the martyr's monument on the hill above.

France conquered Algeria in 1830 and the French promptly built this park in 1832 modelled (in my personal opinion) on Versailles. It is very well kept and has a wide range of different plants and trees as well as a charming little zoo inside. The park is serene and tranquil and very clean and leads you nicely up to the... More
