About this Location

In March of 1916, William H.H. Moody, a retired Claremont Businessman, donated the land known as Moody Park. Moody’s gift to the City was described at the time as “a donation, for use as a public park and recreation ground, to be [enjoyed] for free by the people of Claremont.” A Claremont native, Moody became one of the wealthiest men in the region, having made his fortune as a shoe manufacturer. Today, the park measures nearly 325 acres in size. Located off Maple Avenue, visitors to Moody Park will be greeted with tennis courts and children’s playground equipment. Towering pines shelter picnic tables further up the paved road, beckoning picnickers to enjoy lunches in beautiful, wooded settings. The park’s trails are used for biking, hiking, and cross-country skiing. Visitors who complete their trek to the end of the road will find a stone pavilion and a lovely view awaiting them.
