Ciudad Jardín (Madrid)
Ciudad Jardín is a neighborhood (barrio) of the Chamartín district, situated in the northeast part of the city of Madrid and adjacent to the Salamanca district. It is located between Calle Calle Príncipe de Vergara, Avenida Ramón y Cajal and Calle López de Hoyos, the latter being one of the longest streets in the city and well known for its great commercial activity.
The Ciudad Jardín neighborhood is historically linked to Prosperidad, having been a part of the same suburb since its origins in 1862. Since 1898, the present Ciudad Jardín was integrated into the Prosperidad neighborhoood, which belonged to the Buenavista district. In 1955 the town hall of Madrid added the town of Chamartín de la Rosa to the municipality as a new district, incorporating the Prosperidad neighborhood. A 1987 municipal decree divided Prosperidad in 2 different neighborhoods, Prosperidad and Ciudad Jardín, using the Calle de López de Hoyos as a limit, the commercial axis of the early neighborhood.
