There is an amusement park right in the middle of downtown Raleigh! Operated by the City of Raleigh Parks and Recreation, Pullen Park has so much fun to offer to visitors at such a great price, it’s no wonder that it is a favorite for families of the triangle area. A beautiful 19th century historic carousel, a train, and little kiddie boats can all be ridden here for $1/ guest. The park also has play spaces for several ages and ability levels, and a sand and water area. Interesting spaces, such as the amphitheater, koi pond, caboose, and small islands with shade and geese make spending time anywhere in the park unique and fun. The pond also has pedal boats available for rent in the summer months, as well as some awesome evening films on outdoor screens. The park restaurant, Pullen Place, offers locally sourced food and plenty of vegetarian and allergy friendly foods. It’s such a fun place to be a kid! I hope your family gets to spend a day riding the rides and exploring the play areas soon!
With Love, Turtle Dove
