North Carolina’s weather makes for a wonder-filled visit to their many parks and recreation centers (when the weather is not being unpredictable!). Pullen Park is a part of Raleigh’s Parks and Recreation facilities which allow for organized sports for both children and adults, as well as a place to enjoy with your entire family.
