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. It was constructed by Engineering Universe for Building and Contracting and completed in 2006.
The Cultural Village is a square surrounded by Jordanian handicraft shops. Its goal is to introduce Jordan's cultural heritage to Jordanians and visitors alike.

The park houses a mural constructed on a 488-metre (1,601 ft) long wall which 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.
