Welcome to Moore Park!
Moore Park, named after the Moore family (Rufus S. and Charles S., sons of William Moore, a pioneer of Linkville before the town was named Klamath Falls) who donated the land to the City of Klamath Falls in the early 1900s, is Klamath Falls' largest city park and a central venue for many special events throughout the year. Visitors to this park can experience anything from boating from the Moore Park Marina, to picnicking at one of two locations within the park complex, to walking or hiking along a few of the nature trails that are established in and around the park.
The coordinates to Moore Park are the prominent sign that was placed in 2011 and gives you a nice view of the entrance to the main portion of Moore Park. There are a few waymarks (and more coming soon) that are located within the park premises that you can visit. These include the Upper Klamath Lake 'Beaver Board' Historical Marker; the Eulalona Indian Village Historical Marker; and the Moore Park Nature Trail.
There is also a website called 'Friends of Moore Park' that is focused on maintaining and promoting Moore Park for the public and has links to some great maps of Moore Park for all to enjoy. Their link: Friends of Moore Park. There is also a local birdwatching website that highlights Moore Park and notes the wildlife you may encounter in Moore Park: Birdwatching in Moore Park.
