The park provides recreational open space within a half-mile of local residences. The park project was funded with $500,000 from the Los Angeles County Park District, $100,000 from Partners of Parks received from Long Beach Container Terminal Inc. and park impact fees.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held on November 11, 2011 and the park opened to the public on May 4, 2013 in Long Beach’s Wrigley neighborhood.
In the 1900s Gregorio Encinas purchased the land that is now the site of Baker Street Park from the Bixby family. The Encinas family was one of California's early pioneering families and used the land to create a large ranch and farm. Several generations of the Encinas family worked on this land, operating a dairy and riding academy, and growing alfalfa, beets and other crops.
The funding for the park consisted of $500,000 from Los Angeles County Park District and $100,000 from Long Beach Container Terminal with support from Partners of Parks.
