Al Hussein Park is a public park in Amman, Jordan that continues to be under construction. The project attempts to create a landmark for the city by including a cultural village, sports fields, memorial building, historical passageway, decorated gardens, amphitheater, circular yard, automobile museum, King Hussein Mosque and The Children's Museum Jordan.[1]

Decorated Garden[edit]

In the main attraction of Al Hussein Public Parks, a landscaped garden covers 70 acres (280,000 m2) of a hillside. Sections of the garden include water elements, plants and trees, Mastabas of various heights, arbors, sand hills, gardens, and sites representing historical periods.[1] Constructed by Engineering Universe for Building and Contracting, completed in 2006.

The Cultural Village is a square surrounded by Jordanian handicraft shops. The goal of it is to introduce Jordan's cultural heritage to Jordanians and visitors alike.[1]

The park houses a mural constructed on a 488 meter wall displays Jordan's history from the origins of humans in the area to present times. Certain historical events mark each section. The mural was made using natural elements, such as marble, granite, iron, bronze, ceramic tile and pottery.[1]

The Circular Yard is a decorated patio area or tile, sand, and grass that is mostly used for events and festivities.[1]

Facilities for football, basketball, volleyball, and tennis are available in the sports area. Also in the area is a camping area and stone bleachers that can hold 150 spectators.[1] Built by Engineering Universe for Building and Contracting.
