One of the greatest walking neighborhoods on Mercer Island is Mercerdale. The neighborhood features modest 1950/ 1960 suburban-style homes and is located west of Island Crest Way. It is fortunate to be home to three well-loved island parks: Mercerdale Park, Hillside Park and Homestead Field. Popular Mercer Island Youth and Family Thrift Store is located in Mercerdale, as is the only skate park on Mercer Island. Mercerdale Park is where many of Mercer Island’s large annual events are held, including Mostly Music in the Park, Summer Celebration, the Mercer Island Farmers’ Market and Holiday Tree Lighting & Fireside Munch. Homestead Field is the City’s primary recreational complex, with softball fields, tennis courts and soccer fields.
