Pullen Park has been a Raleigh landmark for years. I went here as a child and now enjoy visiting with my own children. The train is a pleasant ride. There is a beautiful Carousel, but hang on, it is fast. The playground is great and has different age elements. A must visit for families!

This is a great place for the kids! For $8, a family of 4 can have a blast on the carousel and a train ride. For $0, the family can just have a fun time on the playground and walking around the scenic areas.

Share a nice afternoon at the park! Great for families with little ones and couples. Picnic spots, boats, a carousel and train! Close to NC State Campus.

This park is located right besides the NC State main campus. In there you will find pedal boats on a small lake, a small train you can ride with your kids through the forest and even an old style merry-go-round, just to mention a few of the attractions. Prices are reasonable and the park is usually not crowded.

It's fun and nice with young children! You can ride a boat, train, and merry go round. The price is 1 dollar per a ticket. The boat cost 6 tickets per a boat! Everything else cost 1 ticket.

Great place to take the kids for the day and let them unwind. Lots to do, though the tickets add up quickly. Would recommend.

We had never been and had a BLAST! We have small children and this park was such fun for them and for us. A must is the train! We still talk about how much fun we had and have gone back several times. Just a heads up if going in the summer....go early!

Pullen Park is next door to the Governor Morehead School and is a great place for lunch. The park does get crowded on very nice weekends

Family friendly and enjoyable park! Great carousel, pond, duck watching, playground, plenty of outdoor space for parties, train, ample parking, and indoor pool area. I like to walk the area around the pond sometimes during lunch break!
