Dine Out for Gordon Moore Park
Need an excuse to go out for lunch or dinner? When you dine out at participating restaurants each Tuesday in March, 10 percent of the sales will be donated to Gordon Moore Park project.
Twelve restaurants in Alton and Bethalto will tempt your taste buds with their signature meals and raise money for the park at the same time. The schedule of participating restaurants is:
Soccer at Gordon Moore Park
Dining out at the participating restaurants will provide support to complete the new concession and restroom project planned adjacent to the soccer fields and playbround at Grodeon Moore Park. The campaign is within $80,000 of the $425,000 funding needed for improvements. This is the first major improvement project for the park in nearly 40 years. The project kicked off in 2017.
“It’s a tremendous boost to get the support of the community behind this project,” Michael Haynes, Director of Park and Rec for the City of Alton, said. “It’s important for Alton to keep Gordon Moore Park as a destination for family and company outings as well as sporting events and major tournaments.”
Planned improvements to the park include a new concession stand with a seating area, the all inclusive playground, renovations to the Muenstermann Building and new bathroom facilities.
Gordon Moore Park Soccer Fields
Gordon Moore Park was developed 40 years ago by community leaders and labor unions. The park attracts over 1 million cars annually, according to the Park and Recreation Department. Visitors watch soccer tournaments, baseball, softball and other sporting events, enjoy the Nan Elliott Rose Garden, fish, or play a round of golf at the renowned Spencer T. Olin Golf Course.
