We normally come off and on for summer and spring play dates, but got to come for the christmas train or santa train event. The event was well planned but a bit spread out for all ages to enjoy. The line or wait time for Santa wasnt good, byut the actual train ride was perfect.

Had an awesome time with my son. The train ride is great and inexpensive. He wore himself out on the swings and running from me chasing him. We'll definitely go again.

Pullen Park is a great place to bring the kids for an afternoon of fun, or a date to come and ride the authentic merry-go-round or watch the ducks on the pond. There's a light gauge railroad for a pleasant way to see the park. And the food has been upgraded to include items for people who don't just want... More

The primary centerpece of the park is shated by two distinct choices, tue swimmng pools, including one for toddlers and babies, and the seasonal, restored antique Merry-Go-Round. The third and very wonderful "ride" for both adults andchildren is the vintage small train that travels around the park. The park has for many years been used for picnicking, arts and crafts...

My daughter and I just went for the day. It is a very nice place for a small gathering. The merry-go-round is a nice touch.

Lots to do at a day at Pullen park. Tickets are only $1 for attractions that include a train ride, kiddie boats, or carousel. Lots of space to run, walk, and be free. Facilities are stroller friendly. We did a birthday party there and everything was perfect! The staff has always been friendly when we interacted. This is one of... More

We really enjoyed taking our grandson to Pullen Park. We took him on the train and the merry go round. The train was a big hit. He loved playing in the sand and digging with the standing excavator. We also stopped by and got some hot chocolate and a warm pretzel. Great place to spend some good time and not... More

Growing up in Raleigh, Pullen Park was one of my favorite go-to places for 2 reasons: the train and the carousel. Both are still there and I would enjoy them as an adult even more than I loved them as a child. This is a pretty large park with plenty of things for children to spend their energy on. Adults...

Visited with family and young grandsons. The children loved the train ride and the carousel. The park has something for everyone. Picnic areas are also available. We hope to visit again and again.

When a city grows as much as Raleigh has, it's nice to know there are some constants, and for me Pullen Park is one of the few stable Raleigh landmarks. Sure, it's been upgraded and improved over the years, but the train still rides kids around the park like it did 50 years ago, and the paddle wheel boats and... More
