From the train ride to the remarkable carousel to the caboose to the paddle boats, its all here. Eat your breakfast if you go with young children because they will wear you out exploring.

My family has visited Pullen Park multiple times and we always love it! Playgrounds designed for different age groups are a plus. Tickets for boat ride, train, etc are cheap and fun!

It's a nice place to go with kids. The little train is the main attraction and the pedal boats are great. You have to wait in line for some time but totally worth it. The park is free, you only pay tickets for the attractions.

Any family in the triangle with Children under 8 needs to go here! It is sweet, typically not very crowded, and best of all no lines!!! I still have memories of our youngest son's delight at sitting in a "real boat" and pretending to steer...More

Fun things to do as a family. Tickets (for purchase) required for rides. We went as a family and really enjoyed the playground and paddleboats.

We took our 6 and 3 year old grandchildren there. Plenty of room for children to run, play and make noise! The Paddle Boats offer a great way to burn off excess energy, or just enjoy a leisurely cruse. While the train ride is fun...More

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!
