“Nice Park”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Bond Park is a very nice park with lots of things to do. There are hiking and biking trails and playground for kids. They also have water activities for a fee. One can also fish. The Sertoma Amphitheatre is located in the park. They have picnic areas as well. There is parking in several different areas. One of the Senior Centers is located near the entrance to the park. If you are an outdoor person, you will love this park.

“Nice park, wrong photo!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Bond Park is in NW Cary and has lots of trails, a lake with boat rentals and a little theater. The photo attached to the park name is NOT at Bond Park. This is actually a photo of Koka Booth amphitheater at Symphony Lake in Regency Park located in SW Cary.

“Fun in the Park”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you come between April and Oct. you will have an opportunity to rent a pedal boat, canoe, kayak or sailboat. As a resident, my children, myself, visiting friends and family have all enjoyed spending time out on the lake and picnicking under the shelters. In the summer we have "accidentally" fallen into the lake to cool off from the scorching summer sun. As a high school teacher, I have taken several groups out to do the Challenge Course (ROPES). Not only is it a great team building and leadership activity, it is son much fun! As a runner, I have thoroughly enjoyed running the many trails with my running buddy. The trails in the woods are like running a cross country course. I could go on forever about all the fun memories that we have made over the years at this wonderful park.
