The Ranelagh Garden is a green space in the 16th arrondissement in Paris (France).

From rue de Passy (La Muette-Boulainvilliers), the garden is accessible to the east via Chaussée de la Muette. There are Avenue Ingres to the south and Avenue Prudhon to the north, which are connected by Avenue Raphaël to the west, along a meridian path.

Its puppet theater is famous. On its western edge is the Marmottan Monet museum. The streets immediately adjoining the garden are also known for having the largest concentration of embassies and international institutions in Paris with those adjoining Parc Monceau, making it a place frequented by diplomats.

Indeed, the embassies of Gabon, Afghanistan, Madagascar, India and Sudan, as well as the OECD (Château de la Muette) have an entrance overlooking the garden. Many other embassies and delegations to the OECD are also located in the area.

Rarely for a Parisian park, it is open to the public permanently, even at night; it is in fact not closed. Its relative isolation, in the west of the 16th arrondissement and close to the Bois de Boulogne, however de facto limits attendance to local residents.
