I don’t want the title of the review to make you not go to Moore Square if you are in downtown, it is a beautiful place to visit and walk through. That being said, the City of Raleigh over the years has done a great job of cleaning up the park and making a huge police presence known at all... More

How can I not love a place called "Moore Square"? It's like they named it after me (being all square and whatnot)! The bad thing is, it's nothing like the charming little squares that you can find in Savannah. Instead this is more closely related to Washington Square Park in New York. You won't find any obvious drug dealing, nor... More

There's a lot of really cool stuff to do around Moore Square, but Moore Square itself wasn't anything particularly special.

We had plans to meet up with someone driving through Raleigh for a short while. I had visions of a take out picnic lunch from one of local restaurants in a vibrant park, or patio dining. I paid $5 to park (?) then, as my son and I walked our dog around waiting for our friend, we decided to walk... More

We had a perfect day to wander around, check out the military cannons, and enjoy the city. Great place to be. So glad the city doesn't roll up the sidewalks on the weekend.

Moore square has become a place to go in Raleigh. It has the childrens' museum, Imax Theater and much of the art scene. It also has some really good restaurants.

Moore Square is a great location when attending an event. Lots of parking and near city market and a number of restaurants and bars. When there isn't an event, it is filled with homeless people and you want to avoid it.

We are in the area a lot..... We find that there is always at least one person who should be needing some help in the area. Our granddaughter attended school down in that area for two years and it made us very nervous when she had to be there in the evenings. We loved it when the Pub was there... More

...I think City Market could be a lot more successful if only Moore Square wasn't in such a sad state. I get that the homeless are there because of the bus station and soup kitchens...and I certainly don't know where else they can go. What I do know is that I absolutely will not walk through there alone...It's an eye... More

this sad area is a place where homeless sleep on the park benches. there is nothing remotely attractive about this place. i hate how there is so much money dumped into revamping Raleigh's downtown but this area and the square in front of the Tir Na Nog are squalid and barren. They could be beautiful but no. Any city in... More
