The Town Dam

As the original Moora town dam site, this park is steeped in horse tradition.

It was the only public watering point for horses, providing an essential service for residents who used Moora as their railhead and business centre during the horse and cart era.

To celebrate the Centenary of Federation, this park, formerly known as Jubilee Park, has been renamed Federation Park
