Frying Pan Farm Park reviews
When I'm visiting family my daughter and me like to take a walk through the park and around the farm to see the animals and get a little exercise. Very nice place to visit if you have small kids they.... more »
We in Fairfax County are so lucky to have this wonderful, free, park with animals galore. A joy for any age! more »
Went on a Friday so didn't have to fight the crowds. Carnival rides were fun for the kids, no other entertainment set up yet and no food vendors except one which was very busy. Over all still fun for kids while avoids the overcrowding.
Great place to go with the family and can even take your dog. I was babysitting my three-year-old grandson and we visited the park on two occasions, one for the Easter egg hunt and the other just for kicks. He had a ball. It’s a County run facility and appears well-maintained and certainly affordable. Even with the egg hunt crowd it was manageable. I highly recommend it for an outing with children. in addition to the farm animals, there are two playgrounds side-by-side as well as well as a merry go around for a very small fee. There is a gift shop where you can get snacks as well as the restroom. So, what else do you need?
