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

Pullen Park has evolved from many, many years ago. In fact if you haven't been there for over several years you must go. You and your family will really enjoy the visit. They now serve food there so have money on hand because the food stand is positioned at front of the park.

We had one day left to visit Raleigh NC so we chose to drive in and go to our kids favorite carousel with the new grandson. The park is lovely, even though it was a gray day and close to dusk when we got there. The paths and attractions are very well kept and the activities are for all ages.... More

A very nice park especially for families. I don't have kids and I enjoyed the walk around the lake. Great way to get out and stretch your legs.

We frequent Pullen Park, driving 50 minutes to enjoy the activities. Our 4 yr old loves the carousel, pedal-boats, train, and sand box. Parking is tough, but park is big enough to accommodate busy days.

This motel & cottages are very close to our sons house so it was a short trip to go over there each day, our Grandsons enjoyed the pool too! We had a 2 bed cottage which was plenty of space to sleep. Looking forward to taking another trip up in 2017
