Clarke Beach Park sign

This beach park is located on the east shore of Mercer Island. Don’t let the steep walk down to this park keep you from enjoying a sparsely crowded spot with an unparalleled view. On a clear day, you can almost touch Mount Rainier. This park features an open lawn that borders the water’s edge, picnic area with several tables, and a charcoal barbecue grill.
