This park is focused around an old historic farm. There is an exhibit building. My 4 year old grandson loved the indoor exhibit, but the outdoor farm animals were even better. We had a family reunion picnic in a lovely spot under the shade trees. There are picnic tables, trash cans, grills, and plenty of lawn upon which to run... More

Before I went, I didn't realize this was mostly geared toward kids, but it was nice anyway. It's still a fully functioning farm, which is rare in this area!

Oxon Hill Farm is a lovely farm which doesn't get old after multiple visits. It's a great place to take a trip (especially with children) on a warm, sunny day. The farm is pretty large, it has big pastures with cows, horses, chickens, and cats wander around; we've also been lucky to see many deer run across the fields. If... More

A beautiful 19th century farm that has been resurrected and preserved by the National Park Service. Set on a hill overlooking the Potomac, it features cows, pigs, horses, chickens and even a mule. The full range of old farm equipment and implements along with small museums brings farming alive. Join park rangers to gather eggs from the chickens, milk the... More

When in the area you must stop by! A great park with working farm. Beautiful! We would have stayed longer if it wasn't so unusually hot!

This is a great place to picnic with young children. The farm fascinates them and they occasionally have demonstrations to accompany the things you see. In addition to that, we saw both a deer and a fox on one visit.
