Adventure Playground Update

We regret to inform you that the City of Mercer Island Parks and Recreation Department is unable to offer the Adventure Playground Drop-in program this summer. Due to insufficient funding, the reduction of staff, and the failure of Proposition 1, the City was forced to make a number of reductions in non-essential programs and services in order to balance the 2019-2020 Biennial Budget. Given the City Council's subsequent directive to make a long-term plan for insufficient revenues in the future, spending was further reduced by an additional $1.2 million.
We are happy to announce five weeks of Adventure Playground Camp!
Sponsored by JayMarc Homes
Registration begins February 2 for residents of Mercer Island, and on February 8 for general registration. Click here to view the 2019 Spring/Summer Recreation Guide.

The outdoor camp will include elements of planning, building, and outdoor survival - all while incorporating teamwork and fun!
