We were walking around Raleigh for something to do and saw a lot of tents and things going on over in this little park like setting so we went over to see what was going on and they were having a vegan and animal rights outing of some sort through out the whole park, it was different and interesting so...

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 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.
