“This space used to be an abandoned warehouse. The Government eventually invited citizens to propose projects to revitalize the area. We successfully proposed to convert it into this public park where we now have native trees that have been planted along with a space for outdoor cinema powered by bicycles, tango dancing, fitness stations, a House of the Neighbours (Casa de las vecinas) with a library and spaces for courses, as well as a skate park for youths. There are also jobs in gardening and maintenance through a co-op that helps to reintegrate people.”
