Cary park system is a premier parks network and Bond is at the top of the list. Unbelievable programs, community center, Senior Citizen center, playground, picnic shelters, amphitheater, and ball fields. Also has a lake, fishing, watercraft, nature center and a Cope course.

There is a lake with a pier/dock, pretty good fishing, large open areas for Frisbee, picnics, etc. Bathroom facilities are quite clean.

This is a great city park, located in Cary. We went for the first time this week and found plenty of parking in the early evening. A great place to stroll in the woods. There is a lake, though the paved path is through the woods and does not run along the lake. the path is a part of the... 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...

This two mile walk is excellent. I bit if up and down so it is kind of like a wee hike at times. A bit wet after a rain and tree roots make it challenging. Love it.

Bond Park is a great place for an outing. The lake has a small dock, screened-in porch w/rocking chairs, small boat rentals (in season). Also nice, clean areas for the kids to play ball or on playground. Shelters for picnics. Hiking. Adequate restroom facilities, plenty of parking (unless a big event scheduled). Town of Cary has Senior Center and Community... More

We live next to the park and are there at least 3 times a week. Bring bikes and fishing poles and a picnic -- make a day of it! The trails are gorgeous for walking year round, and the views are beautiful. In summer and fall, rent pedal boats, fishing boats or sailboats for a short time (an hour) or... More
