No matter if you go to visit the playground, for a party in a shelter, for a walk, some running, biking, rowing or even just to watch birds. This place has something to offer for everyone. It is well located and has easy parking. Definitely a great option if you like the outdoor. The trail around the lake is very... More

Great for a jog, off road run around lake, or strollig with family. Ample playground for kids too and walikiing the lake is a must.

Nice areas for a variety of activities. Playgrounds, water front, walks, bike rides. Covered shelters for groups. Amphitheater for that big event. Great park in central part of Cary!

Bond Park is connected with the Cary Greenway, which allows residents to walk or bike to or thru the park. The loop around the lake is a fun walk/hike, with some up and down rougher parts of the trail. The park has ball parks, senior center, outdoor theatre, and a community center. You can rent canoes and boats. For those... More

I like walking and biking here, but I'd rent a boat, instead of bringing your own. The put-in is set up for a trailer, so it's slippery. Instead of grass or a beach, it's cement, so it's not a good place for fiberglass or kevler canoes or sea kayaks. The put-in area is not maintained, so its full of debris,... More

There isn't much to complain about this wonderful park within walking distance of where I live. I go there very often, at least weekly, to enjoy the trails and the lake view. Different kinds of trails from paved to dirt path. You can walk around the lake. An excellent planned and executed park.

Whether you want an easy walk along the greenway, or a bit more challenging hike around the lake, Bond Park is a great spot for hiking right in Cary. Lots of other activities including playgrounds for the kids, a lake for fishing, sailboating or paddleboats, and a big open field for flying kites or just hanging out.

Loved the paddle boats, big play areas, concession stand and fishing for the kids. Great place to relax for a few hours.

The pictures is of Koka Booth Amphitheater in Cary and not Fred G. Bond Metro Park in Cary. Bond Park is a great place for family fun. There is a lake, trails, an amphitheater and lots of events. Note: The picture above is of Koka Booth Amphitheater in Cary and not Fred G. Bond Metro Park in Cary.
