Gard (French pronunciation: ​[ɡaʁ]; Occitan: Gard [gaɾ]) is a department in southern France in the Occitanie region.

The department is named after the River Gardon, and the Occitan name of the river has been replacing the French name of the department in recent decades, even among French speakers.

Gard is part of the region of Occitanie and is surrounded by the departments of Hérault, Lozère, Aveyron, Bouches-du-Rhône, Vaucluse, and Ardèche.
