A nice walk - good parking next to the Jardin. Could be tidier. It was good to see the Tarzan tree from the 1950's movie

This is an extensive botanic garden with an interesting assortment of plants and arrangements as well as water features including fountains. Although my visit was in winter there would be plenty of shade available for a visit in high summer. There are several very pleasing vistas including a view of the sea.

The place is worth visit just to have a relax walk if you stay in the city over the weekend. Beautiful trees and plants, nice flowers. Even if there is hot and sunny outside but inside you can walk in the shadows of those huge trees.

The botanical garden of Algiers, Algeria is a nice place for people of all ages. The garden is really well maintained and you get a real great view of the nearby "Memorial du Martyr" on the top of the hill. Better to park your car in either of these two attractions and use the cable car (20 DZD per ride)... More

A vast and big garden where the first movie of tarzan was filmed. Near the garden there is a small zoo. The bad thing is that its full of people ever single day. Dont try to go there on Fridays..
