Current Status

The Moore Lake Park Project continues to make significant progress! New building construction and site improvements are in process and are anticipated to be substantially complete by December 2023. 

Now that temperatures have dropped, the furnace is about to be started up so the interior trades can continue with their work. We experienced a lot of wet weather in October and it has delayed final grading and restoration of the park. Given the remaining sitework activity and the extent of work associated with restoration, the park will remain closed during construction. We understand the enthusiasm and anticipation for the new playground, but for safety purposes it will not be open for full use until next spring. For more information, and to see the exciting changes coming to the park please review the Moore Lake Park Construction Update webpage

More Information


A refined concept plan for Moore Lake was developed focusing on the initial design intent for passive recreation for picnics and gatherings, as well as lakeshore activities. Enhancing Moore Lake Park as an iconic community gateway was recognized as a top priority. Other strategies to improve the park were related to improved water quality in order for water-related recreation to be more successful. 

Recommendations include:

  • Improved and expanded picnic opportunities
  • Water-related activities to include paddle rental kiosk and storage with boarding dock
  • Park pavilion (location and size to be determined based on flood zones) with rental meeting room, restrooms and potential vending area
  • Improved parking areas
  • Basketball court
  • Flexible open lawn spaces
  • Naturalized spaces suitable for occasional flooding and stormwater storage
  • New playground meeting a broader range of ages and abilities 
  • Optional natural play space 
  • Lakeside seating and viewing area 
  • Improved trail connections and internal loops
  • Incorporating landscaping and public art
