A Fun Day At Raleigh’s Pullen Park

RALEIGH – A visit to Raleigh’s Pullen Park off of Western Boulevard near NC State University’s campus can include a locomotive train ride, a ride on a boat, a visit with Andy and Opie from Mayberry, and more.

We visited on a recent sunny Saturday afternoon and found the park to be very vibrant and alive with blooming flowers, the sounds of ducks quacking, and of course, lots of kids having fun on the park’s antique carousel and other attractions.

For more CLICK HERE!

The park also has an antique train engine that costs only $1 to ride as well as a statue of Andy and Opie Taylor from the “Andy Griffith Show”, fishing pole in hand, that was donated by TVLand.

Other fun attractions include the pond with ducks and pedal-boats, the full-sized train caboose on display, plenty of grassy areas for picnics, and more.
