Groveland Neighborhood of Mercer Island

The Groveland neighborhood started out as a summer bible camp, and while some of its historical cabins still are standing, most were torn down to build larger homes. The home styles in this neighborhood are eclectic, ranging from charming summer cabins, to homes built in the 1950s, to newer waterfront mansions. Groveland Beach Park is located in this neighborhood.  The park land was purchased by the city back in 1965. There is waterfront beach access, a picnicking and BBQ area, playground equipment and restrooms.
