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... read more

Lots of stuff to do around here but there's really not much to do except hang around the other cool stuff nearby (and pen your car).

The park itself does not offer much to the public. A few benches; most in direct sunlight. The real charm of Moore Square is from all of the shops, restaurants, museums, IMAX theater and bars in a one block radius. A walk down an original cobble stone street and you can find gift shops, clothing stores, art and cultural shops.... More

No need to visit this high crime area park unless there is a festival. The government holds various festivals in this city block and you can judge each on its merits. There were once four such squares. One became the governor's mansion. Another is half Raleigh government parking and half a park, that one is called Nash Square. The fourth... More

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.
