All Cary Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources facilities are now closed and programming, including classes, events, and camps, is canceled until further notice. Facility and boat rentals are canceled as well. This action follows Gov. Roy Cooper's executive order restricting public gathering sizes, and is taken to encourage social distancing and prioritize the health of Cary's citizens.  Full refunds will be issued for any registered camps, classes, facility reservations, and ticketed Town events canceled due to COVID-19. Learn more. 

The Boathouse has boat rentals for all ages and abilities, including pedal boats, kayaks, canoes, row boats and Sunfish sailboats. We supply all life preservers as part of the boat rental. No experience necessary for most rentals (except sailboats).

We also have a wide range of classes available including sailing, stand up paddle boarding (with REI), kayak and canoe lessons for all age groups.

You can also find bait, cane poles, snacks, ice cream, snow cones, drinks, and more -- all for sale at the beautiful Boathouse nestled among the pines on the waterfront of Bond Lake. Enjoy a nice snack break on the screened porch or stop for essentials before you head out on the lake.
