A beautifully landscaped neighborhood with large lots, Parkwood is located across Island Crest Way from Island Park Elementary. It is popular with walkers and also trick-or-treaters as a mostly flat neighborhood with wide streets. Parkwood’s homeowners association ensures all the homes in this neighborhood are neatly maintained.
Located just behind Parkwood to the east, Mercer First is also a beautiful mid-island neighborhood that enjoys the same proximity to Island Park elementary, Island Crest Park, and the South End QFC Shopping Center.
Only a few homes typically come on the market in Parkwood and Mercer Firs every year, though buyers interested in this area should also watch for new listings in the neighboring El Dorado neighborhood.
