Alfred Moore, Moore Square's name sake, owned over 50 slaves. When people discover this, the name will be changed. It's really a nice city park, but nothing special.

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).

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...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...More
