Funding for New Equestrian Jumps Approved for Frying Pan Farm Park

The Fairfax County Park Authority Board approved funding to boost Frying Pan Farm Park‘s equestrian program.

A matching grant of $4,500 was given in response to a request from the Friends of Frying Pan Farm Park. New jumps and poles will replace existing equipment that is old and heavy.

In a statement, park officials indicated the new jumps will “address concerns about the difficulty of moving the existing jumps.” The Friends of Frying Pan Farm Park will contribute matching funds to complete the project, which is expected to cost around $9,000.

Since 1999, more than 170 Mastenbrook Grant projects have been approved. The Fairfax County Park Authority’s program provides limited matching funds for projects in local parks.
