The gardens got their name from the allotments which covered this area when the Town Council bought the site in 1866, and in the 1930s, benches and dovecotes were added. It is known nowadays as Jardín de los Patos (Garden of the Ducks), due to the large number of ducks in the pond. From the wide variety of species of trees growing in the park, the rarest is a fi ne specimen of ginkgo (a species which has survived from the Mesozoic era). The park contains several monuments, such as the ones in honour of Julio Romero de Torres or the composer Martínez Rucker.
