The first public park of the colony was established in 1944.
The construction of the stairs, the planting of the trees and the leveling of the land were done voluntarily by the residents. The garden stones are made of kurkar and seashells that were brought from the beach and were also prepared by the residents.
The garden is named after Itamar Ben-Avi, the son of Eliezer ben Yehuda (after whom the colony is named), chairman of the Bnei Binyamin Association and the HaNotea company, which accompanied the establishment of Even Yehuda.
Ben Avi died in 1943 in the United States, and in 1947 his funeral procession was held in Israel. The journey left Haifa for Jerusalem and on the way stopped at this park.
At the funeral ceremony, which was held in the garden, the late Yehuda Bachar (the first head of the council) announced that the garden would be named after Itamar Ben Avi.
