Throughout Gold Creek you'll find wide roads, sidewalks, walking trails, parks with baseball fields, basketball courts and tennis courts, and landscaped common areas. Gold Creek is made up of two sectors: The "older" sector on the west side with 453 homes built in the early 90's, and the "newer" sector on the east side with 247 homes built in the late 90's through the early 2000's. The lots are fairly large, averaging around 10,000 square feet. Several acres of the Gold Creek neighborhood are set aside as native growth and wildlife protected areas and 50-foot wide green belt buffer areas.
Bordering part of Gold Creek on the north is Willis Tucker Park, an 84-acre park with an activity center, amphitheater, baseball fields, basketball court, 4.5 acre off-leash dog area, picnic shelters, playground, water park, and walking trails. During the summer, the park hosts a movie night at the amphitheater each week. On sunny summer days, the water park and the playground are bustling with children. If you have a dog, the off-leash dog park is the best in the area. There's even a "shy dog" area separated from the main dog park for dogs that are bit more timid.
