For a gold fish pond make it at least 3 feet deep to keep Raccoon's out and give the fish hiding places. Put an upside down plastic milk crate with extra wide openings on 2 sides. Or put in several depending on the size of the pond. Top it with a rock or potted plant. Remember the more room the better especially if adding Koi - so don't make it small.
