Nice Park!

This is a very nice park to visit. Bring some bread to feed the ducks. Its very busy on the weekends but not very busy during the week. The trails are well maintained.

We're always looking for new places to walk the dogs. This park is convenient with well-marked trails and easy access parking. We had a great fall walk with the pups on a trail that was easy to follow and easy on our feet.

Or a great place to walk yourself ever. Lots of dogs... but thankfully not so many obnoxious bike-riders.

We always come here when visiting relatives in Cary so that we can enjoy the great path that circles the lake. There is construction now (Nov 2016) on the path at the one end of the lake, but you can get by it. It would be challenging if you were attempting to ride a bike. The fall colors are sensational.

My kids are 12, 9 & 9. We went to the park to enjoy a beautiful afternoon together and Bond Park delivered. GREAT walking trails as well as paddle boats and green spaces to run or play ball. Great place in the middle of town, so it is quite convenient as well.

Beautiful park offering lots of options for park lovers. The lake is large, you can walk or use the lake with kayaking, etc.. Love it here early in the morning to watch to sunrise. Easy to find parking too!

Nice lake where you can rent various boats, etc. A lot of walking/jogging trails thru the woods. 4 activity fields plus Lazy Daze children's play area. Cary Senior center and Cary Community center are both inside the park. Numerous picnic area and restroom facilities. Everything is beautifully maintained.

After recently moving to Cary we finally got to Bond Park. Glad we got there when we did as it wasn't too busy yet. After figuring out the trails we did the 2 mile lake trail. Nice that it was mostly in the shade and was a lot of fun to go on.

I have been here multiple tines this summer. Lots of greenery. Lovely trails. Very well maintained. The amphitheatre hosts some really good events.
