The Saxon Garden (Polish: Ogród Saski) is the oldest public park in Warsaw. Founded in the late 17th century, it was opened to the public in 1727 as one of the first publicly-accessible parks in the world.

The Garden was founded by King August II the Strong, who attached it to the "Saxon Axis", a line of parks and palaces linking the western outskirts of Warsaw with the Vistula River. Initially a park of the adjoining Saxon Palace, in 1727 it was opened to the public.

Originally a baroque French-style park, in the 19th century it was turned into a Romantic English-style landscape park. Destroyed during and after the Warsaw Uprising, it was partly reconstructed after World War II.
