Forest Avenue features some of the best Western Views on Mercer Island, along with some the most luxurious high-end homes and expansive private waterfront accesses. The homes in this neighborhood range from those built back in the 1930s to newer construction. Forest Ave also has a reputation as being an empty-nester haven. Miller Landing, one of several developed “street ends” on Mercer Island where a street end right at Lake Washington, is located in the Forest Ave. neighborhood. The Landing provides excellent waterfront access for recreation like wildlife viewing, picnicking, swimming/wading, kayaking and canoeing. Please note that no lifeguards are on duty at any of the Landings.
