Golden Gate Park takes its name from the neighboring subdivision. Although its name conjures images of the large San Francisco park, Chicago's Golden Gate Park comprises only five acres. The Chicago Park District began planning the park in 1965. The park district aimed to reserve recreational space as real estate development progressed in the surrounding Rosedale community. During 1966 and 1967, the park district purchased land for the park with the help of funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Park improvements began in 1969.
