Mercer Island

“Dragon Park” gets grant from Starbucks

The Starbucks Neighborhood Parks Program has awarded a $15,000 grant to Deane’s Children’s Park on Mercer Island, better known as “Dragon Park” for its 50-foot-long plaster and metal dragon.

The nonprofit Mercer Island Preschool Association and the city’s Parks and Recreation Department say they’ll put the money toward a park renovation and new play area that are under way. The city is chipping in up to $20,000 for the project. The association has raised nearly $10,000 and plans to raise $62,000 more.

The city and association will replace bathroom fixtures, repair fences, renovate trails, add a new swing set and climbing rock and build a 50-foot-wide and 12-foot-tall castle to go with the dragon.

The association will host a walk, complete with cookies, from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at Dragon Park to discuss the project. In case of heavy rain, the event will move to the library, 4400 88th Ave. S.E.
