 Aubrey Davis Park Master Plan

On December 3, 2019, the Mercer Island City Council voted to adopt the Aubrey Davis Park Master Plan. The Plan establishes a long-term term vision for the amenities, trails, and open space areas throughout the park. The plan was developed based on feedback received from numerous public engagement events Ė from online surveys and public forums to open houses and discussions on the Cityís Letís Talk Mercer Island website.

Projects established in the Plan focus on four key areas: vegetation management, trail improvements, park improvements, and arts & placemaking. The Plan enhances the Cityís eligibility for grant funding for future projects. The Parks & Recreation Department already received a $500,000 grant from the Washington State Department of Commerce for trail safety improvements within the park, whcih the community will have the opportunity to provide input on in 2020. The Plan also allows the City to renegotiate long-standing maintenance agreements with the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).

The City of Mercer Island thanks City Council, Parks & Recreation Commission, Arts Council, state legislators, and, most of all, the many citizens who participated in the planning process over the last 18 months. The feedback and engagement were critical to the successful adoption of the Plan.
