Island Crest Park Renovation Project
In 2014 the Mercer Island Parks and Recreation Department was awarded a grant through the Recreation & Conservation Office for the renovation of Island Crest Park. The grant, totaling $500,000, will help pay for the replacement of the existing lighting system at Island Crest Park, and the conversion of the entire south field to synthetic turf. The grant requires $150,000 in donations from the community. We need your help to make this project a reality, allowing for year round play for Mercer Islanders and other regional athletes. Mail a check to 2040 84th Ave SE, attn: ICP Project, or use the PayPal link below to donate. Your help is greatly appreciated! More Information.
