We took our granddaughters to Pullen Park three times during their visit. The train was fun for the girls and us, and they loved the carousel and kiddie boat ride. Paddle boats were too small for long-legged folks, so maybe next year the girls can...More

Beautiful park that the entire family will enjoy! You will not be disappointed at all with your visit there. It was supposed to be just an hour visit, however we spent many hours here! This place is definitely a must see for the family!

We've taken our sons to Pullen for years and it's a delightful place with a carousel, train ride, paddle boats and playground. Plus parents can enjoy all the beautiful landscaping, plantings and park benches. Several years ago they did a full restoration of the park...More

Have been to Pullen Park many times. My children and grandchildren love the train. We have had many family outings there and have always been able to find a table and a grill. Love Pullen Park and will be going back again many more times.

Parking is an issue, but wonderful venue for family picnics, walking, outdoor fun or relaxation. There is a snack shop. One can also rent paddle boats.

We were at this park for a business cookout a few days ago. I love how the park is separated into different areas for multiple proposes, but they're all close enough together that they are accessible without feeling crowded.

Pulled Park has been a Raleigh treasure for decades. It has a gorgeous merry-go-round, paddle boats on a duck pond, refreshments for sale, a mini train that circuits the grounds, and more. It is fantastic!,,

I don't think so. I would try one of the local lakes instead. Many of them have paddle boats and are dog friendly.

Absolutely! Keep your dog on a leash and attended at all times, and be prepared to clean up after it. Dogs are not allowed in play areas, on the carousel, or on the train. Other than that, Pullen Park is dog-friendly!
