Mercer Island's Beloved Rainbow Park Experiences a Massive Overhaul

After the massive and overwhelmingly positive response from Island Crest Park’s facelift, the City of Mercer Island was eager to start their next project at the South Mercer Fields, specifically the New South Mercer Playground.

With collaboration between the Mercer Island Parks and Recreation Department and the Mercer Island Preschool Association, this beautiful park proves an enhancement to the area. Other parts of the park experienced additional updates in past years, and now it’s time to renovate “Rainbow Park”.

Staff and contractors are completing each new, natural-style component of this one-of-a-kind playground – and the first in our region. New components are expected to include a climbing structure, webbed climber, a rock slide and other nature-inspired swings, benches, and play equipment.

Expected completion is only a couple weeks ahead, so keep your eyes out and ears open for details!

If you haven’t checked out the new Island Crest Park, you should plan a few hours there the next sunny weekend we get!
