Landon Park
Biskra, Algeria
Count Albert Landon of Langeville, b.1844., moved to Biskra, Algeria in 1872 for drier climate, acquiring a 10 hectare estate on the banks of Wadi Sidi Zarzour, in the Châtenier district.  The property was later opened as a resort.  

Considerable resources were invested to design the garden with paths, footbridges, and irrigation canals, Plants were imported bushes, trees, and flowering plants from around the world. A pavilion was constructed in 1880.  

After independence the park was placed under the supervision of the municipality. Development of the surrounding area eventually shrank the garden to 4 hectares.  The park was renovated and by 2013 has reopened to the public.
