You can't think of a cuter place to take young ones. From the little Chol-choo to the historic Denzel carousel to the paddle boats surrounded by ducks and catfish and the wonderful trees surrounding the space, it is a treasure for downtown residents!

We love Pullen Park! The train ride, the carousel, and the playgrounds are always a hit with the kids. By the pond is a great place to have a picnic.

Went to birthday party here for three-year-old. The kids had a blast. Would definitely go back and consider throwing my own party here.

The renovation they did is excellent. The paddle boats and carousel make it the best park in Raleigh hands down. The carousel is one of the oldest working in the country and adds a lot of character to the park.

Went there with my sister, nephew and elderly mother ... great park, lots of fun for everyone. Different activities to keep children's interest. We went and it was wicked hot; better to go on a cooler day and better as an all day activity. The train ride was really neat! The only dowside is the food is not good and... More

I remember visiting Pullen Park as a child and riding the train, the carousel and the boats. We had numerous church picnics under the shelters over the years. In middle school we took a field trip to Pullen Park and I remember rollerblading around the park. Working at NC State, I regularly walk over and through Pullen Park on lunch... More
