Construction of waterfront improvements will be starting in early March, weather permitting. The waterfront area will be CLOSED to the public during construction for everyone’s safety. The project area extends from the back of the boat house to the lake, and includes the walk down from the parking lot, the gazebo and paddleboat dock, and the beach area. The lake will be lowered approximately two feet during construction to allow the contractors to install the boardwalk support posts and the pervious matting at the canoe/kayak launch area.
Fred G. Bond Metro Park, at 310 acres, is one of the largest municipal parks in Wake County. Like an oasis in the middle of town, the park design preserves the environment and offers opportunities for many types of recreation.
Please call (919) 462-3970 to reserve a shelter.
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.
