I took my 3year old grandson to this beautiful park and we had a wonderful time. It was hard to believe that most of the attractions are free. The train, carousel and paddle boat rides are available for nominal fees.

I recently visited the newly updated Pullen Park and was very pleasantly surprised by the updates. All of the historical favorites are still there: the carousel, the train, the kiddie boats, but all have received a face lift. The carousel is now protected from the elements by an enclosure and has received a fresh coat of paint. Ride tickets are... More

This is a great playpark for kids - carousel and a small train (both of which cost) and lovely play equipment. It's a bit on the small side and very different from the UK style parks, but it still kept our wee ones entertained for a few hours

Spend Saturday afternoon at this park. There was a small train, an authentic carousel, kiddie boats and a huge lake with peddle boat rentals. The train, carousel and kiddie boats, the tickets are only $1 each, and the peddle boats rent for about 6 dollars an hour or half hour. There are plenty of picnic tables, green grass, playgrounds, and... More

We recently took the grand kids to Pullen Park. We were very impressed with the fact that a small community park would have such neat amenities such as a small train to ride, a small children's boat ride, paddle boats on a small pond, a good size play ground and a large, historic, carousel. All of the rides are one... More

When I was small in the 50's I remember having picnics here. I also remember riding the train and the carousel. I took my son and friends there growing up, and now take grandchildren there. I feel they get the same good experience that I did 50 years ago. Raleigh has recently remodeled the park, but it did not lose... More

If you have young kids, under 11, this is the place for you. A park like this should be in every city. Old world charm ( hundred year old carousel), and modern fun. Picturesque... Great place for family pictures. So nice to be able to purchase ice cream in the park.

Very nice place for kids to have fun. So much nicer since renovated. Rides are fun and carousel can be enjoyed by kids and adults. Nice to just stroll around the water,

Pullen Park is a jewel. Price is right for family fun and activities with age appropriate rides and the carousel is beautiful. Lake and grounds are perfect for a family day outing.
