Another post from Frying Pan Farm Park. The link that tells you more about it can be found here. The last time we visited was about five years ago. It is a great place to take children because of all the farm animals.
I have always been curious as to how Frying Pan Park got its name and on doing a little surfing I found that there isn't really a definite answer. However, at this link I found the following information.
"....a group of people were camped by the water and in their haste to leave the next morning, they left their frying pans behind. Depending on when the story is told, the 'group of people' were American soldiers from the War of 1812, copper miners from 1728 or Indians even before that."
"The second story is that the shape of the run emptying into a round pool suggested the name."
