What is there to do?

Did you know that Pullen Park is the 16th oldest operating amusement park in the WORLD! That's pretty cool!

It really is so much more than a park.  There are a huge amount of fun activities suitable for most ages and abilities.

To cool off during those summer days there is a great indoor pool to hone their skills or just have a fun splash about it.

There is a really cool Amusement Center which has a mini train, kids' rides, a beautiful full sized 1911 carousel for those 42 inches or taller, kiddie boats for those tiny budding sailors, and pedal boats for up to 4 people to enjoy at a time. 

For those creative hands and minds there is an Arts Center where they hold programs in pottery, jewelry making, painting, printmaking, bookmaking waving and glass arts.  They also hold special events throughout the year as well as gallery exhibits. 

For those active kids aged 2 - 12 who love to run and play, there is a great adventure playground that is split into four areas for four age groups, so they little ones won't get overwhelmed with the big kids, and ensure age appropriate activities for all the kids.   Activities include a beach like sand and water play area, stage where they can make music, swings, climbing sets and fun slippery slides. 

If that wasn't enough, there are also three softball fields and six tennis courts!  So you have no excuses not to be staying active here and having a great time!
