Vacationing with family in the Cary area. We were looking for a good place to introduce the baby girl to her first fishing experience and for our middle sons next chance to catch the big one! This lake is awesome. Tia Chia lessons were going on across the pond which made for a very peaceful morning. Nothing was caught but... More

You can rent kayaks, canoes-you have an option to rent a small motor for the canoe-which is a separate charge, pedal boats, and sail boats. You can bring your own boat as long as its under 16 ft. and isn't gasoline powered. There is... More

This place has it all: playground, trails, woods, all off of a quiet road in Cary. Went there on a sunny afternoon and watched my kid play for hours in the playground with other nice kids while I sat at a picnic table in the shade.

No dislikes here. This is a top rated park in Cary NC. It is a mile from our house. We use the trails for walking and I use it as a base to take rides on my bike. Unbelievable resource here in Cary NC!!

This park is impressive! There is always something going on here and it's a great place to relax and forget about life. Most recently my girlfriend and I rented a pedal boat and toured the lake. The rate for the boat was $7 for 30 minutes and we thought that was very reasonable. They also have sailboats, kayaks, canoes, and... More

Love Bond Park, particularly the Sertoma amphitheatre where you can enjoy incredible music in an intimate setting under the stars. I can't wait for the season to start. I experienced Blue Grass, Jazz, Brass bands for free! No overpriced tickets, parking nightmares and jumbo trons that pass as concerts. The ballparks are beautiful and the walk around the lake is...
