Places to Go - Frying Pan Farm Park (Herndon, VA)


(The girls loved the space to run and T loved the mud).

Frying Pan Park "preserves and interprets" a 1920s through 1950s local farm. In the spring, the farm has several baby animals, when we went three weeks ago we saw two litters of piglets (so cute). (Click here for the entire 2011 birthing schedule). We also saw cows, goats, peacocks, chickens, bunnies, horses, etc. - T especially loves to check out all the animals. And all three kids love the farm's play tractors, which they can "drive" for long periods of time. A lovely, stroller-friendly loop-trail goes around the farm and through the woods, which makes for a nice walk. And the farm has a general store (with lots of toys for sale, so be careful when you enter with kids) and two playgrounds. Really, a great place to visit.
