There is so much to do...feed ducks, paddle boat, play area, and much more. We love walking the trails in the evening. Every time we go it is a new and exciting adventure...lots of wonderful picture opportunities.

This park is amazing. A lake beautiful scenery birds chirping very serene. Seen turtles, ducks and geese. Picnic tables and boat rentals available during certain times. I seen one guy brought his own hammock. I would highly recommend this park for walking or just relaxing!

Just beware if there has been rain - real drainage issues esp on trail around lake. There are lots of nooks for places to get cozy with your family. Lots of dogs, I like dogs just letting you know. Restrooms are always clean.

Liked hanging around the lake and enjoying the beauty. My kids loved the picnic by the lake. The playground is great too.

We have visited here numerous times and always enjoy the trail around the lake. It is muddy in spots in the spring, so expect your shoes to get dirty. However, it is an incredibly relaxing and pleasant hike, not very strenuous. I would not recommend trying to take a stroller.

this is a fun park. Has softball fields, picnic shelters, workout trails, and amphitheater and paddle boats for the lake. This park is also home to Cary's spring daze- a smaller version of the lazy daze festival. Very nice shady setting. Bond park also has a nice community center and a senior adult center.

I like the trails at Bond park, they all connect so that you can bike or run a loop around the park. Also, they are a nice mix of elevation changes to make for a challenging ride and a good workout. Another plus is the greenway trail that connects to the park, providing another mile of riding or jogging out... More

That's the stage at Koka Booth. Bond Park has a simple stage and lots of hiking trails, lake, sporting fields, and wildlife.
