Mercer Island is served by seven City-owned public buildings, the Mary Wayte Pool owned by the Mercer Island School District and operated by Olympic Cascade Aquatics, one Post Office and one King County (KCLS) Branch Library. Facility uses, locations and sizes are listed in Table 1.

During 2001, construction of a new Main Fire Station and a sizable remodel of the Thrift Shop were completed. The City became the owner of Luther Burbank Park in 2003 after transfer of the property by King County. The Mercer Island Community and Events Center was completed in 2006. The construction of Fire Station 92 at the south end of the Island began in 2014 and was completed in 2015.
