Moore Square Historic District Reviews & Ratings
Moore Square is definitely growing right along with the rest of downtown Raleigh. Roots Festival was fun and informative. Everyone in the park seemed genuinely nice for a change. Hopefully they add a historical monument or two within the park. Oh, and Roxi loved it too!
This is a great addition to the area. It’s a well use of the space and a nice way to bring the community together. It would be nice if they add more bicycle racks. Other than that, it’s a great place to walk around or just lay down in the grass, and I hope that Raleigh creates more of this.
I love the new Moore Square. My young son and I usually come to events here at least once a week, often combined with a trip to Marbles or the farmers market or the night market. Really nice place. I love warm evenings with lots of people just relaxing and having fun here.
The remodel of Moore Square is great. Love the open fields, the clean pathways, the landscaping. Especially appreciate the attention to detail and keeping the old historical oak tree is intact. The new square burger shop on the south and is a nice touch. The architecture of the building is pleasing. The remodel of Moore Square is great.

Excited to see how this will continue to shape downtown’s community in the years to come.
It is just me, or was the $13 million price tag and 2-year construction effort excessive given the final result? It seems to me that very little has changed other than the construction of a small burger kiosk (really?), removal of several trees, and a few benches. The N&O had a flowery article by an architect describing all kinds of altruistic philosophy about how the square symbolizes unity and so forth but I call B.S. In my opinion this is was a lost opportunity to create something truly remarkable in DTR, but we wound up with pretty much the same lawn and pathways as we had before the project.
