From the 19th Century to the middle of the 20th Century, this place functioned as a prison, measuring around twenty thousand square meters. In February of 1961 the City Hall of Buenos Aires acquired the ground, but abandoned it until 1982. In that year, the Plaza Juan Gregorio Las Heras was born, and it became a place of recreation and dissemination of information, receiving visitors in large numbers. In recent times, they have implemented a series of activities for the family. In one sector, a soccer school for boys on synthetic pasture functions every day. There is also a terrace for skaters and sufficient space for children to ride on their tricycles. There is a merry-go-round that is still quite popular with the tots. In other sectors of the park, classes of gymnastics, yoga and aerobics are held.
