I have a friend who lives less than two blocks away from Claude Moore Park. She walks here with another friend regularly. I had never heard of it so I thought it would be a nice place to visit. Her daughter had mentioned that there was a photographic exhibition on wildlife this weekend and I was hooked. Gregg and I always enjoy exploring new places and when I told him about this place he was all for it. We arrived around noon. It had been raining and everywhere was a bit damp but it didn't rain for the rest of the day and we enjoyed a nice leisurely walk.
The Park was named after Dr. Claude Moore who was born in Danville, Virginia, in 1892. He was a very interesting man, and a short biography can be found here.
