“A fun place for children and adults”
Review of Pullen Park

The renovations at Pullen Park are excellent. The Carousel is simply gorgeous and the children love to choose their own animal to ride. The playgrounds are well designed for each age group. The train ride is a basic circle but kids were really excited and liked it. A great spot to spend a few hours or more.

This place has been revamped and is open for fun! Your kids will love the new playgrounds and the rides (carousel, boats, train) that are a $1 each. There are also paddle boats for the older kids and adults. Even the onsite eatery has a brand new menu with new favorites for healthy eaters and kids alike. For a weekend In December, the city turns the park into a Christmas attraction with a visit from Santa and decorations in the evening, but tickets in advance are required from Raleigh's park and rec website (check online for dates). The only complaint everyone has is a lack of parking on nice weekends and you have to circle to find a spot. But, your kids will have a blast!

Very Clean and BIG Park, passed thru to see the Andy Griffith statue.(That part was disappointing due to the vandalism.) It is a shame that they Don't fix the statue especially because he had passed away this year.
