PROJECT BACKGROUND
The City of Moore purchased the property for Old Town Park approximately five
years ago. The development of Old Town Park was made possible by a dedicated
sales tax approved by voters in November 2016. Old Town Park will be
approximately 2 acres in size.
The Park will be located in the historic Old Town District of Moore, Oklahoma by
the Main Street and Broadway intersection. Old Town Park will be a public park
that will include a Train depot. The Depot will house a coffee shop with 130 sq. ft.
of kitchen space, 500 sq. ft. of seating space where art will be displayed, also an
artist in residence space of approximately 240 Sq. Ft will be in another area of the
depot. This location for the train depot lends itself to anchoring a town square
type area. The public art will help determine the form of the rest of the space. A
12-foot standard trail will extend north and south across the site.
