Always a fun place for all ages. It's a neighborhood gem that's been around for many years. My grandson loves seeing the animals, the hayrides, and the carousel. We can always find things in the little store to buy. The seasonal concerts are great. Lots of picnic tables and parking.

We went for a walk and to observe the animals. We walked for tow miles on picked gravel roads. Clean rest rooms and well maintained facility. A nice place to enjoy the day. Ride in tractor pulled cart or just walk around. Many animals to see.

We were looking for somewhere to go to get the kids out for a couple hours, and this place looked like a good idea. We had a great time. It’s easy to get around, and they’ve got lots of animals. It’s definitely a good place to get outdoors for a couple hours.

Visited on Sunday, 2.21. There was exactly one pig out. That’s it. There was ice everywhere that was totally untreated. No salt or sand or anything, which is surprising since those conditions pose a danger not just for visitors, but also employees. When we tried to go over to see the one lone pig, my sister - who was carrying my toddler - stepped on a patch of snow that she didn’t realize was covered in a thick layer of ice. She fell, my toddler hit her head on the ice, and we all went to Urgent Care. There’s no excuse for not doing something about the ice, especially since the place obviously is aware children come to visit...

Won’t be back, ever.

We saw piglets and their mothers eating like, well-pigs! There were a few days old goats and lambs by their mothers’ sides, a turkey just strutting along, sheep baaing, cows mooing, a bunny looking cute. The horses are majestic… and this all was on a Monday. It was a treat to show up at feeding time. These animals are VERY well cared for and it made my heart happy to escape the more congested and touristy spots (visiting DC) to soak up some sunshine and farm life. This is a perfect stop for families with young children or anyone that loves animals and getting back to nature.

This is a working farm that you can visit. Kids learn about farming and animals. There is also a carousel that the kids can ride for a minimal price. My grand kids love visiting here.

Frying Pan Farm Park is so much fun! I love to go to the park and talk with Jesse, the draft horse, and all of the other animals (cows, sheep, peacock, ducks, roosters, chickens, sheep, goats, etc). The park is free and is fun to walk around. I go to the park often. There is even a nature trail, and a waterfall to boot! The park also offers great concerts over the summer that are FREE!

My wife and daughter visit Frying Pan Park very frequently. Daughter enjoys to see animals, walk around making noises to attract the animals. Milking of cows is fun for children. Wish they had more petting-animals opportunities.

Its free,,you can take as little or as long as you want. Spring is a great time to visit...all the baby animals...most will come right up for a pet and a blade of grass...There is a country store, and a tractor ride and a carrousel on weekends, those have small fees...there is also an equestrian center on site where, if lucky you can catch a horse show, or class...very cool little stop of history and fun

I love going to Frying Pan Park and always recommend it to visitors. It is fun to walk amongst the animals. I enjoy taking my dog, who loves to sniff around like crazy. There are several fun things for families, including a farmers market, playground, horse barn, store, carousel, and farm animals. If you go in the spring, there are baby animals, which are great to see. Just go -- it's worth the trip!
