The site was previously the location of a factory where coins were made, thanks to the Federation of Neighborhood Associations it has been repurposed in a park in 2020. It is also a “disaster prevention park” equipped with a storage warehouse, a deep well to secure water for firefighting, a heliport and white oak trees have been planted to prevent fire expansion.
