Its construction is fully documented in photographs by Tomás Bradley Sutton. La Plata was renamed Eva Perón City (Ciudad Eva Perón) between 1952 and 1955.

The city is home to two important football (soccer) teams: Estudiantes de La Plata, that plays in the first division, and Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, which ascended back to first division in 2013.
