A little About Mercer Island

Becoming home to the Earth’s second largest floating bridge in the world, Mercer Island is occupied by over 22,700 people. Located in the Seattle Metropolitan area, the island was first settled back in the late 1800s and is now known as the most populated island in a lake within the United States. Interstate 90 runs through the northern part of the island and is accompanied by three bridges to make up the route. The island is part of King County and acquires its own unique zip code – 98040. The most updated census lists Mercer Island as # 209 on the list of most expensive ZIP codes in America.

The island has its own City Hall as well as a total of nine schools. Six of the schools belong to the Mercer Island School District (three primary schools, one middle school, one high school and one alternative secondary) and the other three vary in the ages that they serve. The St. Monica School is K-8, the French American School of Puget Sound is P-8, and the Northwest Yeshiva High School is for grades 9-12.

Throughout the island there are 475 acres of parks and open spaces. Luther Burbank Park is one of the most popular and it contains many different activities for people to enjoy: public boat dock and fishing pier, a swimming beach, an amphitheater, tennis courts, barbecues and picnic tables, and an off-leash dog area. Pioneer Park consists of 113 acres of open areas, hiking trails, a children’s park and much more.

During the annual Seafair celebration that is celebrated in Seattle, Mercer Island is a popular spot to catch performances by the Blue Angels. There is also a Summer Celebration that is held over 4th of July weekend that attracts people from all over.
