The park includes:

Golden Eagle Park was developed in 5 phases utilizing Town funding and grants and was completed in December 1998. The 25 acre parcel was donated to the Town by MCO Properties shortly after incorporation and became the Town’s first municipal park. The Town received nearly $1.4 million in grants from Arizona State Parks Heritage Fund to develop the park. Golden Eagle Park was recognized by the Arizona Parks and Recreation Association with the Outstanding Facility Award for a community under 60,000 in 1999.
