Inauguratit in 1944, Ciudad Jardín wis conceivit bi Doctor Erich Zeyen,[1] a German emigrant who arrivit in 1929 wi the idea o creatin a Garden Ceety that affered a balance o urban life wi green spaces, a ceety athin a ceety. It haes been recognisit an mentioned in publications on urban plannin on a warldwide level.[2]

The influential Argentine professor o ingineerin, Carlos María della Paolera, foonder o "Día Mundial del Urbanismo" (Warld Urbanism Day), haes praised Ciudad Jardín as the first Garden Ceety in Sooth Americae.

Ciudad Jardín is a commonty that haes endured the passage of time an modrenism gracefully. Housomeivver, at present, ceetizens are debatin whether a heich-gate wi direct links tae an expresswey shoud be built. Thare is a general concern that the proposal wad ruin the commonty's character an put it in jeopardy. It is argued that a hintle better approach wad be tae impruive the run doun commuter San Martín rail line that runs parallel tae the proponit heich-gate.
