I-90 & West Mercer Way

Aubrey Davis Park Master Planning is starting soon!
Aubrey Davis Park is a 90+ acre, 2.8 mile long recreation and transportation facility straddling Interstate 90 on Mercer Island.  The land is owned by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and the City of Mercer Island (City).  A key facility of the park is the Mountains to Sound Trail which links Bellevue and Seattle.  The park facilities are approximately 25 years old.  Capital reinvestment needs, regional growth, demographic trends, the construction of East Link light rail and King County Wastewater’s North Mercer Sewer Upgrade have contributed to the need for planning services for this park.  WSDOT and the City are jointly developing this master plan, with the City acting as lead agency.  You can help shape the master plan by participating in surveys and meetings starting in Summer of 2018.  To be added to the plan’s email list, send an email to paul.west@mercergov.org.

Aubrey Davis Master Plan Information
The Aubrey Davis Park Master Plan process will include the currently improved Aubrey Davis Park on the I-90 Lid, the I-90 / Mountains to Sound Trail, the boat launch and waterfront adjacent to and under I-90 at both ends of the island, and the open space along the I-90 corridor through the island.
The purpose of the master plan is to express a long-term vision for the park, trail and open space that will guide future improvements. Features shown in master plans illustrate how they’d be coordinated and laid out over the landscape, with more detailed design and fundraising to follow at a later date. For that reason, it’s critical these master plans reflect the programming and character traits the community thinks the park should include. 

The following is a general timeline anticipated for this master planning process.

Aubrey Davis Park (formerly Lid Park) is a great destination for the entire family.

There is something for everyone with two softball fields (70' bases or less), four tennis courts with a fabulous view of downtown Seattle, a picnic shelter, 2 playground areas, public restrooms, 2 outdoor basketball courts and plenty of open space.

The well groomed open areas invites kids of all ages to romp around, throw a Frisbee, fly a kite, or explore the children's play area, play some outdoor basketball or a game of softball.

In the Fall the Aubrey Davis Park fields are used for soccer and other activities. In the Spring and Summer this park is home to softball, baseball, volleyball and everything else under the sun.
