    The park was a great experience for my family during our vacation. It was cheap (free parking, $1 per ride per person), clean, and unlike any park we have visited. Our daughter is turning 3 (in 2 months) and she asked for 2 days if we were going back to the park. She loved the carousel. It was not as fast as it originally appeared, or as the comments made it seem. We also enjoyed the train ride and playground area. There are unique play areas, including sand boxes, that kept her entertained for almost 2 hours. There are also misting stations that she and the adults enjoyed during our hot day out. The staff was very friendly and attentive to the children. We are planning to return before our vacation is over and will definitely visit again when we are back in Raleigh.

    My goddaughter and I stopped by this park during the 4th of July holiday and it was packed with people barbecuing and enjoying the beautiful weather. The park was huge and I was pissed that I didn’t know anyone to go and get a piece of BBQ chicken or hamburger, LOL. They have these huge areas with BBQ grills and tents to cover you from the sun. We saw a cute railroad train that looked like it went around the park that we meant to get on but we were making several stops after this park visit. We did take a ride on the pedal boat for $5 for 1 hour I believe. The pedal boat was hilarious because it took dang near half the time to figure out how to maneuver the direction of the boat. However, the pond was cool and serene even with lots of other people around. We stopped in and saw the large carousel pavilion and there was a long line for the kiddies to get on. The park was clean and definitely a cool spot to come and chill with family and friends

    One of the best city parks I’ve been to even though it’s not very big, Pullen Park has something for everyone. From kids to adults! While Pullen has a nice green space and man-made lake, what really makes the park are the amusements. Lovingly restored carousel, the JP Huntington choo-choo that chugs around the park along with pedal boats. Grab a sandwich at the Pullen Place snack bar and then burn off those calories on the playground or on a walk around the park. It’s really a lovely spot and SUPER popular but thankfully late night summer hours mean you can find a quiet period. Honestly, even if you don’t have kids or can’t borrow any, check out Pullen Park! It’s your tax dollars if you live in Raleigh and you’ll see that they have been very well spent here…

    What a perfect park for a city! It’s North Carolina’s first public park. It first opened in March of 1887 when Mr. Pullen donated over 66 acres as a gift to the City of Raleigh. The city did a fantastic job recently renovating Pullen Park. It’s got everything from picnic tables, playgrounds, and grills for a family/friend picnic. Plus there’s lots to do for everyone of all ages! There’s even a mini amusement area which houses a gorgeous Gustave A. Dentzel Carousel. _When was the last time you rode on one_? There’s concession stands for treats and soft drinks. Even pets are allowed [on leashes of course] The paddle boats are so popular. Don’t forget to plan plenty of time to fully enjoy the park and jump on the train as it meanders around the park. Prices for tickets/rides are $1

    This is a cute park with a carousel and a cute little train that runs around the whole thing. the lake is beautiful as well! the only bad thing is the neighborhood that surrounds it. This place is downright scary. DO NOT GO HERE AFTER 9 PM.
