Aubrey Davis Park, formerly the Mercer Island Lid and First Hill Lid, is a park lid covering 2,800 feet (850 m) of Interstate 90 (I-90) between West Mercer Way and 76th Avenue Southeast on Mercer Island.[1] The park was created as to minimize the impact of I-90, opening to the public in the 1990s. Former Mercer Island mayor Aubrey Davis lobbied for the park’s creation in the 1970s. After his death in 2013, the park was renamed after him.[2]
