“No more acorn, just a trashy park”

Acorn in Moore Square
Reviewed 18 July 2017

Honestly, this place is rather a dump, and looked to even be slightly dangerous as we drove around it looking for the acorn. The acorn is no longer in Moore Square. Moore Square is a lie. If you're looking for the giant Raleigh acorn, head instead to Memorial Auditorium on East South Street and you can get your acorn experience in full. Avoid Moore Square at all costs.

The acorn is no longer in Moore Square... Moore Square looks like a dump... Nothing worth seeing here... Go a few blocks down the street to Nash Square instead.

It is an acorn. In a poorly-maintained city park. With homeless folks milling about. Did I mention the acorn?

It's a giant acorn and not much more. It's one of those that we visited just to say that we did. It's erected in a park in the middle of Raleigh just down the street from a homeless shelter, and is understandably a hangout for those whom have to vacate the premises during the day.
