Our most recent addition to our park system is Moore Park, gifted to the City of Republic Parks & Recreation Department by the Republic School District in 2016. Prior to the property becoming a new city park, the area was used as an outdoor classroom space for the district brought about in the early 1990’s by the efforts of Ms. Connie Moore, an elementary school teacher. The park features a 1/2-mile paved trail, a pavilion for general use and private rentals, several trees for a shaded walk, and a heart-shaped pond. A portion of the Moore Park trail services as a connector piece for the Highway 174 Trail, running from Main Street to the Republic Branch Library.
J.R. Martin Park is open to the public from 5:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m.
The pavilion located within Moore Park can be rented for $10 per hour. The structure features four (4) picnic tables that can seat up to 32 people with an adjacent charcoal grill.
