Bond Lake (Ontario) is a 55-acre (22 ha) glacial kettle lake in the Oak Ridges Moraine. It is located on the east side of Yonge Street in the north end of Richmond Hill, Ontario.


Prior to the late 1800 the lake was surrounded by farms by various land holders: Whitneys' and Mortons', Webster's. In the 1790s 200 acres around the lake was granted to former Queen's York Rangers William Bond. William Bell would sell his portion to developers responsible for Bond Lake Park.

Bond Lake Park was a recreation park from 1899 to 1929 owned by the Metropolitan Street Railway (Toronto) (MSR).

Today the lake and lands are part of a 175 acres Oakridges Corridor Conservation Reserves under the Toronto Region Conservation Authority.
