The most newly spruced up in a series of Mercer Island waterfront street ends, Calkins Landing is a fantastic small public space.
A paved path curving like a snake through the lawn creates a nice way to access the park, and it’s stroller- and wheelchair-friendly. Pause at the bench or picnic table for a bite to eat or cross the grass to reach the beach made up of small pebbles and logs.
Along the south side of the park is a nicely planted swale. Young trees will grow taller in the coming years to provide more privacy from nearby homes.
