The Luxembourg Garden is a 23 hectares (56 acres) garden, located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, France.

The Garden was designed in the 17th century by the Florentine hydraulics engineers and garden designers Tommaso Francini (1571–1651), in the French garden style.

He also built the Medici Fountain in 1630s. More than 2,000 elm trees were planted and large flower beds were laid out.
