Pullen Park Reviews & Ratings

  • Pullen Park is a wonderful park, and especially a great place to take children. There is a wide variety of activities for both children and adults. Some activities require a ticket, for a small fee: these include the train rides and the carousel. There is a lake that is beautiful to walk around. There are also well designed play areas with slides, ropes, sand, etc, which are great for children. The park was well attended on the day we went, and also well maintained and clean. I would highly recommend this park for a family outing.

  • I took my twin sister here to do the paddle board and it was so fun! Definitely more of a family environment because it has tons of fun things for kids to do, a train, multiple playgrounds, merry-go-round, and more! And everyone we talked to was nice and helpful! I definitely would recommend it to any family or friends who just wanted a fun outdoor activity!!!

  • Beautiful place! The carousel was built in 1911 and it is still gorgeous. There is also a train and paddle boats. The carousel and train cost 1 ticket per person, which is $1.50 each (totally reasonable) and the paddle boats hold up to 4 riders and costs 4 tickets. There are lots of playgrounds and play areas for very young and older kids. No admission fee to get in the gates.

  • It is a great place to take younger children. My grandson loved the boats, miniature train, carousel and playground. He had never been on a carousel so didn't know what to expect, but he loved riding the horse that moved. Topped it off with a popsicle for good behavior. The park is always clean and a great family place to take a picnic lunch. Parking is available.

  • Very cool park right in downtown Raleigh. My little one loved the train. There was Paddle Boats, Carousel as well. A lot of playground for different age ranges. The park is free but the rides are $1.50. Will definitely be back.
