Fred G. Bond Metro Park

Due to damage from Hurricane Matthew, the Lake Trail has been modified to an out and back trail. The pedestrian bridge at Oxxford Hunt is closed through Summer 2017 (updated 11/17/16).

Fred G. Bond Metro Park, at 310 acres, is one of the largest municipal parks in Wake County. Like an oasis in the midst of the town, the park design preserves the environment and offers opportunities for many types of recreation.
