Gordon Moore Park was built with the help of volunteer union labor, and that partnership exists to this day.  The Alton Park & Recreation Department hosts a number of events at the park through the course of the year, including the Labor picnic and Softball Tournament each August. 

Park & Recreation Executive Director Rhonda Lewis says they continue to benefit from work by union laborers.

Lewis comments

You can reach Lewis or her staff by calling 463-3580.
