The Park is home to a vibrantly realistic ox cart monument and stadium. The monuments were created to commemorate the fact that the stadium was the site for the first World Soccer Cup organized by FIFA. Great photo opportunity.

La Carreta; the covered wagon monument, is located in the Jose Batlle y Ordonez park. This is a magnificent bronze and granite sculpture was created by Jose Belloni, in honour of the ox-cart drivers of the 19th century. Well worth seeing.
