This place is dear to my heart. I remember visiting as a child, taking my children and nieces/nephews there, and now my grandchild. A real working farm where children can learn about farm life, see a sheep shearing and milk a cow.
If you want a place you and your child can enjoy in quiet and space, Oxon Cove Farm is the perfect place. Even though it's within minutes of Washington D.C. the Farm is on a hill overlooking the city and is just far enough way to seem absolutely isolated and quiet. With horses, cows, pigs and chickens to watch and... 更多
Oxon Cove Park & Oxon Hill Farm make up a national park unit. Although it’s in Maryland outside Washington, DC, it is part of the National Capital Region.

Right outside Alexandria, Oxen Cove is an adorable little farm with animals that makes a great getaway on the weekend, especially if you have kids. The space isn't particularly expansive, so you probably won't need more than an hour.

You can take them there the next... 更多
I took my 1yo so to the farm to see some animals. It was easy to get to (just off the beltway near the WW bridge), parking was plentiful and convenient, and best of all the farm is FREE. Just walk right in. We went on a warm sunny Sunday afternoon in spring, so I thought it would be pretty... 更多
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... 更多
