Bond Park offers a basic orienteering course of the point-to-point variety, with a start, a series of controls to be visited, and designated finish. Use the Bond basic map with control points or the master map with the master control markers to create your own course.
All facilities are integrated into the natural setting. Visitors may enjoy picnics, play ball on the athletic fields, see a performance in the amphitheater, walk along the trails, or play on the Lazy Daze Playground. The Bond Park Community Center and the Cary Senior Center are within the park boundaries.
