Geneva is one of Europe's greenest cities, with 50 parks. These include the English Garden, Botanical Garden, Parc des Eaux-Vives, Parc de la Grange, the Perle-Du-Lac, Ile Rousseau, and Parc des Bastions, the former botanical garden with its lovely promenade in the heart of the city littered with monuments, fountains and statues.
The Flower Clock, in the English Garden, is the world’s largest floral clock, while the Reformation Wall in the Bastions Park, is a monument to Geneva's turbulent religious past
Below the Old Town, in the heart of the city Geneva has created its first botanical garden. In and around the Parc des Bastions you will find the world-renowned Reformation Wall and the leading reformers, the Palais Eynard, seat of the city government, and the old university building with its library. The former bandstand is now a restaurant. On its side, a giant checkers game and chessboard attract players and spectators alike.
