great place to take grandkids for a leisure time. There is a playground for the kids to play, a train ride around the park, paddle boats and my favorite a carousel. The grounds are immaculate and costs for rides and food are really reasonable.

I was so impressed with the layout and opportunities that this park offered! Vegan friendly concession/food stand, beautiful lake/pond area, fun little train ride, great carousel, and perfect playground area with cushy padding underneath!

The Park itself is very well kept. It has fun attractions in addition to separate, age appropriate playgrounds which I personally appreciated when my kids were much younger (2yr-5yr). Attractions are; Kiddie boats, a train that runs around the park, pedal boats and my favorite,.. the Carousel. Tickets are only a $1 for all riders 13 months and older. Riders... More

I use to come here as a kid, & carried my own children here as they grew up. Now, I carry my niece, & my little cousin. This is an awesome, & reasonable priced venue for a Birthday party, but beautiful enough for a wedding. It's historic, & fun for the whole family no matter the age. You can have... More

Traditional city park with train ride around park, paddle boats, merry go round, playground and picnic shelters. Great place to walk your dogs. Wear out out your kids. Enjoy a picnic. Have enjoyed this park for over 40 years starting as a student at neighboring N C State University.

Grew up going to this park, the train ride has always been my favorite ride (especially if you have small children with little patience). The boats and carousel will always be a classic favorite. Plus, the playground itself has a lot to offer. The food they serve here is good and not too expensive, but is located near some great... More

My daughter was married at Pullen Park and it was a great day our families will always remember. The staff there helped a lot and the access for handicapped and older family members was easy to handle. Transportation access was convenient too. We have fond memories of the Pullen Park and I know my daughter and her husband (and now... More

Raleigh's oldest park, is also the best for kids. Ride the train or the carousel. Play on the large, modern playground or have a picnic under the trees.

This place is our local Disney world, a gem of a place for our preschoolers Great train ride, scenic, esp when trees and flowers in bloom, well kept park and well maintained train, carousel, etc. Highly recommend and worth the drive. $1pp rides are wonderfully priced.

Pullen Park is a great park to visit. It has great views, a great playground and lots of other things to enjoy. I have been there four or five times before and every time I go it did not get any less fun. We were walking to the paddle boats and there was a brick turtle. We climb on it... More
