Moore Square in Raleigh re-opened last summer and is hosting a full slate of free events.
The 4-acre Moore Square is bounded by E. Hargett Street to the north, East Martin Street to the south, S. Blount Street to the west, and S. Person Street to the east.
It’s across Hargett Street from Marbles Kids Museum, so it will be a great way to extend the fun when you bring the kids to the museum.
The park will include a tree house-themed play area, a water play component, and several gathering and performing spaces.
