Bond Lake Trail Head: 12611 Yonge Street Richmond Hill, ON L4E 1A4 Get Directions


Bond Lake is part of the Oak Ridges Corridor Conservation Reserve (ORCCR), an important ecological linkage on the Oak Ridges Moraine.

Located in Richmond Hill, the ORCCR property is dominated by mature forests, wetlands, meadows, kettle lakes, and a network of recreational trails. Bond Lake is one of the many kettle lakes in the area.

Visitors are able to use the trails to enjoy the natural beauty of the ORCCR while protecting the integrity of the surrounding ecosystem.


TRCA reminds all nature seekers to be extremely cautious when enjoying time outside this winter, and to stay on designated trails at all times.

Ice is never 100% safe. Please STAY OFF local TRCA rivers, streams, ponds, reservoirs, wetlands and marshes. Conditions are not being monitored and ice may be unsafe.

Venturing out onto the ice is NOT a permitted activity at TRCA parks. Do not put yourself and others at risk.
