History

This park is located at 32nd Street and Santa Fe Avenue. It was purchased from the Moulton Estate in February of 1925. One of the oldest pioneer social centers, the Wesley True Moulton home was removed from the park in 1960, when the park was redeveloped. In the early 1930s an old converted barn served as the park's first clubhouse. The present clubhouse was started in 1936 and was completed in 1938. This building contained an auditorium with a stage, basement playroom beneath the stage, a kitchen, card room, checking room, and restrooms.

One of the more intensively active recreational parks in the City, it contains a swimming pool (added in 1961), and a gymnasium building (added in 1980). The pool was enclosed about 1968 and was renovated in 2007 with funding from the 2000 and 2002 state Park Bond Acts and the federal Urban Park and Recreation Recovery (UPARR) program. The resolved safety, disabled access, and maintenance issues, and will created a new aquatic facility to offer recreational swimming, swim lessons, and programs for youth, teens, senior citizens and the disabled.

The gymnasium was renovated in 2004 with a new wooden floor with funding from the 2000 state Parks Bond Act. The park's non-building improvements include two softball fields, two baseball fields (one lighted), one lighted overlay soccer field, two basketball courts, four tennis courts, a mini skate park, a roller hockey court, a volleyball court, a playground and picnic areas.

The playground was renovated in 1994 with funding from the Los Angeles County Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond Act of 1992 and in 2003 with funding from the state Parks Bond Act of 2000. The sport field lighting was renovated in 1996 with funding from the Los Angeles County Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond Act of 1992.

Improvements to the lighted baseball field were completed in 2000 with funding from Darren Erstad through Angels Care. The field was named Darren Erstad Field in honor of his donation. Improvements to the tennis and basketball courts lighting and fencing is expected in 2009 with funding from the State Parks bond Act of 2002.
