The park is a remainder of the old Linthout forest that began at Dailly square. It was designed by Edmond Galoppin of Melsbroek and inaugurated by King Leopold II of Belgium on 6 June 1904. Its name comes from the resemblance between the valley of the Roodebeek where the park is located and the Valley of Josaphat in the Holy Land, noted by a pilgrim back from Palestine in 1574. It was designated on 31 December 1974.A collection of statues in the park include work by sculptors Jules Lagae, Victor Rousseau, and Albert Desenfans.
