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 are swings, baby wings, horse bouncies, and plenty of interesting sections to the playground structure. The trees that border the playground make it a pretty place to spend some time.
Across the street, there is a pleasant walking path that makes a loop around the perimeter of Pelican Lake. Benches shaded by trees provide a place to rest along the way. Lovely ibis birds putter around, and if you walk out onto the gazebo you will see little turtles bob their heads out of the water. You can also spot fish under the water! It's fun for kids!
Don't be too alarmed by the spooky "beware of alligators" signs that make you feel uneasy as you stand near the brackish water. They were placed here in 2007 when a seventy-pound alligator was spotted here in May of that year and then trapped in July 2007. No one knows how it ended up in this small residential lake.
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. One short section of the walkway requires you to walk along the sidewalk of 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!
Or for a healthy meal or juicer juice, go to Green Garden Cafe, a three minute drive south.

Hi Ed, I've caught bass, tilapia, some sort of catfish, and freshwater sunfish in the lake.
