Variety of things to do with families with children; train rides, carousel (that is an antique), paddle boat rides and several picnic areas for small and large groups. No children? Still a great place for couples to have some fun; ride on the carousel or paddle boats. Well maintained, clean; nice place to take your out-of-town friends also.

I went with my 4 year old son. He really enjoyed all the slides, water/sand activity, boating and of course train. Very cheap and great place for small kids.

Wow it was wonderful. I got my picture taken with Andy and Opie. We also rode the train and walked around the lake. The carousel also looked like fun.

I'm so glad we went to Pullen Park! It is a beautiful park with gorgeous landscaping and a beautiful lake with paddle boats. There was a train ride around the outer edge of the park and an old carousel. There is free parking and only a $1 charge for the boats and carousel. Also there was a food concession area... More

Although the outdoor train has had mechanical problems on and off over the years, it is an awesome train and at $1/ride is very affordable. Any young train ride enthusiasts will love it. For kids under 7, there is a boat ride for $1/ride that all little tikes adore. The carousel was recently re-opened and is beautiful. At $1/ride it... More

Again, TA was spot on with the reviews for Pullen Park. My kids and I (ages 8 and 3)enjoyed a morning here and brought along a picnic lunch. We arrived just before 10:00, which I would recommend based on parking and that it was not too busy. By 10:30, the crowds had rolled in. The landscaping is beautiful - on... More

The property has free parking, and an indoor... More

Pullen Park - a paradise for children. My 18 months old grandson loves this place - the rides. His favorite are the train and carousal. There are so many fun things for children and on warm days the paddle boats are a must. Pullen Park can be a full day outing - bring a picnic. It is also most enjoyable... More

Perfect park for families and couples!!! Beautiful trails and a nice scenic view, Lots of cool activities for children to do and a decent playground area. For the couples their are paddle boats on the pound and nice trails to get away from people. I definitely recommend this park to anyone who loves the outdoors. ;)

Lots for little kids to do - boats, train rides & carousel. They had live music the night we were there (happy coincidence) - so great!! Snack shop & clean facilities.
