Moore Park - Then & Now
The Moore family donated 114 acres of land to the City of Klamath Falls for the development of the park in 1926. Moore Park was home to downhill skiing in the 1950's, archery, ice skating and a city zoo, which housed a black bear, raccoons, foxes, skunks, bobcats, badgers, porcupines, deer and exotic birds. The zoo closed in 1976. Today, Moore Park hosts soccer fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, picnic areas and nature trails.
Erected by U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, City of Klamath Falls, Partners For Fish & Wildlife.
