Gan HaShlosha National Park (Hebrew: גן השלושה‎, literally: "Park of the three"), also known by its Arabic name Sahne (Arabic: الساخنة‎, literally: "The hot (pool)"), is a national park in Israel. Located near Beit She'an, it has naturally warm water where visitors can swim all year.

The spring water that emerges in the western part of the park maintains a constant, year-round temperature of 28 degrees Celsius. Amal Stream, which crosses the park, has been widened into pools.[1]

An old water-powered mill operates at the site and an adjacent madafeh, or Arab hospitality room, has been restored. A model of Tel Amal, one of the Tower and Stockade settlements set up by Jewish pioneers on the night of 10 December 1936 after the British banned Jewish settlement, is located in the park.

The Museum of Regional and Mediterranean Archaeology is located on the grounds of the park.[2] It houses a display of rare Greek tools, artifacts from excavations in the Beit She’an Valley and an exhibit about the Etruscans.[3]

"The Garden of Eden," a film about Gan HaShlosha, premiered at the Jerusalem Film Festival in July 2012 and won Israeli filmmaker Ran Tal an award for best director of a documentary. The film was screened at the DocAviv Galilee festival in Ma'alot-Tarshiha in November 2012.[4]
