Type: Public Park
Address: 5801 80th Ave SE, Mercer Island
Visited on: 9/4/2020

Notes:
Groveland Beach is a large park on the west side of Mercer Island, about half-way down. There is plenty of parking at the foot of the steep access road that comes down from W. Mercer Way. Park amenities include paved trails, a children's play area, a beach volleyball court, shallow and deep water swim areas set off with buoy lines, a ladder to enter and exit the water, a big dock, and a nice sandy bottom and beach. Very nice! Just 100 meters north of the swim area we encountered an un-mapped concrete structure - another part of storm water management? Up close, it sounded like a spring or creek was being captured and directed into the lake. There looked to be land-side access but I couldn't find it from the network of streets when I checked it out. Just another shoreline landmark, I guess.
