My kids love this place and I must admit, I do too. My little girl gets so excited over the train and there are plenty of play areas for the kids to run around and be kids. Children of all ages are there and the picnic area is shaded and quite. They really did a great revitalization of this park... More

Pullen park is a Raleigh institution. My four year old thinks it's the best place on earth...and my 11 and 16 year olds enjoy it too! The food in the cafe is decent and the rides are so well priced. It's a great way to spend an afternoon in Raleigh.

We visited the park with young kids on February 1st and stayed there for about 3 hours total. Enjoyed the train ride and the play area. Carousel and mini boat rides were closed because of the cold. Decent place to visit during spring and summer months.

I took my grandson, 4 years old, and his parents to Pullen Park when they came to visit. It's a wonderful park with great play grounds, green space, a train, paddle boats and a 1920's carousel. The park is free, but there is a small charge for the rides. Everybody loved it.

We always take out out-of-town visitors here -- esp. since they renovated it. Reasonably priced for rides and food. Great place for young and old.

Kids of all ages love this park! The train and the carousel are our favorites. The playground area is clean and has a misting station, which is always a hit.

Went on a weekday with 2 grandchildren. They had never been there before they loved walking around the park and playing in the different play area unfortunately the rides were under maintenance but gives us opportunity to revisit. Awesome place

Usually busy but that's because it is such a pretty park. Love the merry go round, beautiful grounds and paddle boats.
