The Turner Farm925 Springvale Rd.
Great Falls, VA 22066
The Turner Farm offers a unique mix of educational and recreational facilities:
This peaceful and serene 52-acre park is located on the site of a former dairy farm. Its rolling pastures and dairy barn complement the semi-rural community of Great Falls, Virginia. The land was saved from development by a public/private partnership started in 1994 to "Save-the-Farm." Private donations and volunteer efforts continue to supplement the Park Authority's limited budget for this facility.
Location: The Turner Farm is located at the intersection of Georgetown Pike (Route 193) and Springvale Road (Route 674) in Great Falls, Virginia, within the Dranesville District. The park entrance is on Springvale Road.
Hours of Operation: The park is open dawn to dusk except for speciality, after-hours events hosted only on Friday nights by the Annalemma Society. Visit the Analemma Society website (www.analemma.org) for a schedule of astronomy events. There are no entrance fees and no onsite park staff.

A playground for small children is now available at the end of the paved parking lot. The Great Falls Lions Club sponsored this playground with a generous donation. Other planned community facilities include:
