The 15.9 acre parcel of land for Golden Community Park was purchased in 1994 for $80,000. City officials and St. Clare Communities Organized for Public Service (COPS) joined together to break ground for the park on Sunday, May 26, 1996. Councilman Henry Avila, former City Councilman Frank Wing, and COPS First President Andres Saravia spoke at the ceremony.
Initially, construction included a park roadway, parking lot, entrance, drinking fountain, sidewalks, a playground, benches, picnic tables, a covered pavilion, and landscaping. The $155,000 in improvements were paid for with Community Development Block Grant funds.
