Since 1792, Moore Square has been a place of gathering, reflection, entertainment, and recreation for the citizens of Raleigh. This 4-acre downtown urban green space, originally conceived as one of 5 public green spaces for the City of Raleigh, is embarking on its greatest transformation since its conception. Moore Square includes a dignified border framed with North Carolina granite, an expansive event lawn, a food service kiosk, an interactive water feature, grove rooms and a natural play area. All this, while still ensuring the beautiful bordering grove of 100 year old oak trees remains untouched. Moore Square will distinguish Raleigh as a city with premier public spaces and act as a catalyst for downtown growth and economic development. Programming for Moore Square will be engaging, interactive, welcoming while featuring annual programs and events that showcase the park and the community partnerships.
