Area Parks

All parks are open to the Public Daily from 5:00a.m. – 11:00p.m.

While Rothwell Park is by far the largest of our local parks, Moberly has three other beautiful parks for residents and visitors to enjoy. Each park has its own unique features, and all of them provide a relaxing, tranquil place to relax and enjoy the local beauty of the City of Moberly. All of these parks are available for private rental.

Lion’s Beuth Park

Located on Beuth Road and formerly known as the Quarry, this area was given to the City of Moberly by brothers Tom and Bill Riffel. They were the nephews of the late John Beuth, who owned this tract of land until his death. The lake, known as the Quarry, was caused by springs that terminated digging operations for clay when Moberly's brickyard was in operation.

The Moberly Lion's Club co-sponsored the development of this area. A rail car was converted into a footbridge to the peninsula. Small open shelters, barbecue grills and a restroom are available. The rock bluffs are a beautiful sight all of their own. Fishing and hiking are popular activities in this neighborhood park, but it is also perfect as a unique place for a family reunion, company picnic or wedding reception.

Thank you to the local Lion's Club for their support in making this park what it is today.


Tannehill Park

Tannehill ParkLocated in downtown Moberly on the corner of Reed and Hagood Streets and behind the Post Office, Tannehill Park has been in existence since the early 1900's as a location for public gatherings. American soldiers visited the park for entertainment and refreshments when traveling by train on their way to New York, where soldiers sailed for France. This park is the location of the City's Time Capsule buried to commemorate the anniversary of the City of Moberly. The next Time Capsule scheduled to be unveiled is in 2016, the 150th anniversary of the City of Moberly.

Fox Park
