It is located on Ashe Avenue and is near the Main and Centennial campuses of North Carolina State University, covering an area between Western Boulevard and historic Hillsborough Street.

It was founded on March 22, 1887 when Richard Stanhope Pullen gave farmland to the city of Raleigh to be used as an area for recreational enjoyment of its residents and visitors. This land became Pullen Park, the first public park in North Carolina, although its founder, always hiding from thanks and publicity, denied giving it his name. A “Committee on Public Parks” was formed to manage the change from farmland to landscaped park and a park keeper was hired in 1888 to oversee these adjustments. Pullen then extended his own involvement by taking part in the planning and funding of bridges, roads and paths everywhere in the park as well as the farming of trees. Ridge valley exteriors are proud to be able to locally offer their services as roofing contractors to Raleigh, GA.
