Home to an enormous range of plants and trees on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
The number one green space in Algiers
A stroll through this beautiful park is always good for the soul, one of those moments that you'll cherish from your visit to the Algerian capital. This is a huge botanical garden, spanning over thirty hectares, where you'll find one of the largest collections of plants and trees in the country, with both native and foreign species. Construction of the park began in 1831, in the French and British style, and it has been the top green space in the city ever since. It is especially popular in the afternoons. Two things really stand out about the park: firstly, its location on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, in the Hamma district, adding an extra facet to its natural charm; and secondly, its flat layout in contrast to the rest of the city. A stroll around Le Jardin d'Essai du Hamma is a real must and the best way to enjoy the more natural side of the city.
