Frying Pan Park (Kidwell Farm)- Herndon
Frying Pan Park's 98 acres, located in Herndon, five minutes from Dulles Airport, offer a wide variety of recreational and educational opportunities. Visitors can sample Fairfax County's rich rural heritage and county's only public equestrian facility. The old Floris School House, Moffet Blacksmith Shop, Country Store, Frying Pan Spring Meeting House, and Kidwell Farm preserve many of the essentials of 1930 rural life. Draft horses for plowing, cows for milking, chickens for fresh eggs and other animals essential for farm life are raised at Kidwell Farm. Three miles of cross country trails, jump equipment, and indoor and outdoor riding rings attract the area's top horses and riders. The park also hosts a wide range of activities such as arts and crafts, fitness and children's classes, as well as seasonal events, hayrides and farm life demonstrations.
