Time Out says

During the 1970s, the owners of the old textile factory La España Industrial announced that they wanted to use the land to build apartment blocks. The neighbours joined forces to push for the construction of a park, which is how it came to be that in 1985 the architects Luis Peña Ganchegui, Antón Pagola and Montserrat Ruiz designed this space. Ten towers stand watch over a lake with a statue of Neptune in the middle. Close to the entrance sits the enormous and somewhat sinister sculpture of a dragon, a piece by artist Andrés Nagel entitled Drac. It isn't exactly one of the prettiest parks in the city, but it is interesting.
