The Parque del Oeste (in English: Western Park) is a park of the city of Madrid (Spain) situated between the Autovía A-6, the Ciudad Universitaria de Madrid and the district of Moncloa. Before the 20th century, the land that the park currently occupies was the main landfill of the city. The park is the initiative of Alberto Aguilera, the mayor of the city at the beginning of the 20th century, who in 1906 requested the layout of a place for walking and relaxation by landscape artist Celedonio Rodrígáñez. It has unique and beautiful sites such as “The Rose”, which is held every year an international tender roses.
The park also has a monument to José Francisco de San Martín Gómez y Matorras, known simply as José de San Martín (c. 1778 – 17 August 1850), who was an Argentine general and the prime leader of the southern part of South America’s successful struggle for independence from Spain. It also has a Fountain of Juan de Villanueva.
