  • What a great park! Beautiful in the fall. A train ride that goes around the grounds, a beautiful enclosed carousel and a giant playground nestled in manicured landscape and lakes/ponds filled with geese. Great photo ops. There's also an eatery.

  • Great place to take the family. The train is a lot of fun as is the Carousel. The paddle boats are cool too but those are not open all year. The only downside is it is often super busy and they do not have enough swings.

  • I have been to Durham many times. This time I decided to spend a few hours in Raleigh. I heard about this city park and spent about 45 minutes here. I like the fact that it is kind of wide open, with a beautiful pond (lake) in the middle of it. Plus, I thought it was cool because it also had a train station for the kiddies. I could see this as a great spot for a picnic. Go ahead, Raleigh.

  • It’s a beautiful park and tickets are available at great price $1.50 per person for per ride. There is no parking fee which makes it comfortable for parents to take their kids outside without hurting the budget. I would love to come again and would recommend to my family friends to visit this place once and they will not be disappointed.

  • How could anyone not give Pullen a five star rating?!? When my kids were small, we loved the train and boats. Now that they are a bit older, we stick mostly to the playgrounds and paddle boats. Great park with something for every age :)
