The Milton and Harriet Goldberg Park is located at the corner of Sunnyside and Ramona. According to SierraMadreNews.net, Goldberg Park, which was dedicated in April of 2008, was the first park opened in Sierra Madre in over 30 years.
The Goldbergs, who were among the founders of the Sierra Madre Community Nursery School, had owned the property for many years. Local children often played on the empty lot, and the couple chose not to build on it because, as Mr. Goldberg is quoted as saying "Children need space, time and love."
After the Goldbergs passed away, their children felt that it would be approriate for the land to become a park. Ultimately, the city sold the land that the Nursery School sits on to the school, allowing funds to purchase the Goldbergs' property and create the new park. The bench in this photo contains the quote:
"Children need space, time and love."
