“First public park in north carolina”
Richard Stanhope Pullen founded History Pullen Park on March 22, 1887. Once farmland, Mr. Pullen donated the land as a gift to the City of Raleigh to be used as parkland. He characterized it as on old cow pasture, red and rocky. He intended this land to be used for the recreation use and pleasure of the inhabitants and the visitors to the City of Raleigh. Through his visions, Pullen Park became the first public park in North Carolina
Great family park that includes dedicated space for toddlers, a cafe, merry go round and train rides. Parking is VERY limited so if you go during peak park times you may end up having to take a short hike to get to the entrance gate.
This is an awesome park to hang out at with the kids. Mine really enjoyed the train ride, and playing at the park.
Very nice to walk around - relaxing kind of place. Have a picnic and enjoy a couple hours...
No two ways about it, this place is for kids!
