Frying Pan Farm Park is part of the Floris Community in western Fairfax County, known as Frying Pan from 1726 to 1892 when the name was changed to Floris. Today, the park preserves and interprets a 1920s through 1950s farm, agricultural process, rural community life and landscape for the educational, cultural and recreational enrichment of citizens and visitors of Fairfax County.

We invite you to explore our "virtual" park here on the web. It's a great way to discover the wide variety of programs we offer. But be sure to visit the "real thing" out here on the farm.

Admission is free to Frying Pan Farm Park and Kidwell Farm.
