Lock at Hugh Moore Park
40 40' 97 N
75 13' 22 W

The park was named after Hugh Moore (1887-1972), inventor, industrialist, philanthropist, and public servant. Amongst his inventions is the Dixie Cup. The park was purchased in 1962. It encompasses 260 acres and the area of the Lehigh River that runs through it. Mule drawn canal boat rides are a favorite attraction during the summer. The canal, and three locks have been fully restored. In addition to the lock tenders house, the Canal Museum provides an accurate and intriguing history of the area.
