Mercer Island Parks Mercer Island has 475 acres of parks and open spaces. Mercer Island Parks are open for year-round enjoyment and are the perfect place for a variety of activities like: baseball, soccer, volleyball, having a picnic or taking a walk with the family. Pioneer Park is our largest park, with 113 acres of beautiful forest and 6.6 miles of trails. The Park has been kept in a natural state so that Island residents and other visitors can easily â€œget outâ€? in the woods through the course of their daily lives. Roads divide the park into three distinct quadrants. Located on the northeast end of Mercer Island, Luther Burbank Park features spectacular views of Lake Washington, and has facilities for several water-based activities including swimming, boating and fishing. It is also a large park of 77 acres, and portions of its waterfront and wetlands foster a variety of wildlife such as 155 species of birds, beaver, muskrats and rabbits There are many smaller parks, beach parks and street ends, providing an excellent opportunity for waterfront access and pursuing recreational activites. www.mercergov.org/Page.asp?NavID=328
