Kagan Park has a nice playground in a slightly recessed area by a small lake called Pelican Lake. Kids enjoy the twisty slide, while adults shoot hoops at the basketball court or work on their muscles at the workout stations. There is a pleasant walking path that makes a loop around the perimeter of Pelican Lake. There are benches shaded by trees along the way. Unfortunately the ducks there are a nuisance. Also, the "beware of alligators" signs make you feel uneasy as you stand near the brackish water. A seventy-pound alligator was spotted here in May 2007 and then trapped in July 2007, and no one knows how it got to this small lake that does not open to any rivers.
The lake path is short (one mile) and easy which makes it nice for kids on scooters, as long as they aren't scared of the large, confident ducks. The lake has fountains in it and gazebos where you can sit and enjoy the views across the water. It isn't a beautiful spot but pretty enough for a stroll. One short section of the walkway follows the sidewalk alongside Ocean Dr but soon winds back down to the lake. There are bollard lights along the path so you can walk at night as well.
After your walk, eat at County Line Pizza, on the northwest corner of Donald Ross Rd and Highway 1- when you walk in, you can just smell how amazing your pasta or pizza is going to be!
