Activity Guide
3 Guides Released Every Year:
Teen Activities Council
The Teen Activities Council is made up of a group of high school youth who plan once-a-month recreational activities for teens of all ages in Meridian.

The TAC is a subcommittee of the Mayor's Youth Advisory Council.

Summer Camps
Community Center
The Department received keys to Meridian's first Community Center - located at 201 E. Idaho Avenue - formerly the Boys & Girls Club, in October 2008, and is used by Meridian Parks & Recreation to hold classes and other special events.

Because the facility was built before building codes required buildings to be constructed and to provide access to citizens with disabilities, the restrooms, counters, and entrances were not up to today's standards. In spring 2011, construction was completed, and the building now has pedestrian ramps, renovated restrooms, accessible counters, and sinks, and a new accessible drinking fountain, funded through a Federal Community Development Block Grant.

This land acquisition consists of 77.7 acres and is located on Lake Hazel Road near South Locust Grove.
Located in the Bainbridge Subdivision off Ten Mile Road between McMillan & Chinden, this will be a 7-8 acre neighborhood park. It is currently a 100-acre turf farm.
The existing concepts plan to guide development of a 30-acre future park (Borup) located on the northeast corner of Cherry Lane & McDermott Road will be updated to include the additional 17 acres (Bottles).
Do you have a talent or skill that you would enjoy teaching to other people? We are always looking for instructors to teach new and exciting classes!
Do you want to make a difference in the community? Help us make our programs the best they can be simply by volunteering your time. Become a mentor for kids at our summer camps or help improve our parks. Several opportunities are available.
Give a Meridian child the gift of recreation who wouldn't otherwise be able to participate. The "Care Enough to Share" program is funded 100% from donations and is used to pay the registration fees for Meridian children in need.
Help the earth and support our community with our recycling program by donating your empty printer cartridges, old cell phones, digital cameras, iPods, and GPS devices to go towards the Care Enough to Share program or to purchase park or recreation equipment.
Meridian's First Dog Park:
In January 2009, we opened a public dog park located just west of the Meridian Police Station on East Watertower Lane.
The name of the dog park, "Meridian Bark Park," was revealed, and a grand opening public event was held on May 26, 2009 for dedication.
With a rapidly expanding parks system, our Parks Maintenance Division headquarters has outgrown its current location on Bower Street. We have planned for the future by developing a new maintenance facility. In 2011, the City purchased 6.11 acres located on the corner of Locust Grove and Lanark Street. On May 29, 2013 a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to dedicate the four-building facility which consists of offices with enclosed shops, material storage, and vehicle storage areas.
This is a pathway design project utilizing Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant funds. Segment E runs from Ten Mile Road east to the Creason Lateral where it will tie into the Ustick/Linder Bridetower Connection.
Settlers Village Square, Phase 1 consists of two tennis courts, horseshoe courts, and two picnic shelters. This project was completed in 2009 and is one of the most popular amenities in our parks system.

Additional improvements include restrooms and a future picnic shelter. Construction is expected to begin in summer of 2013.
An updated master plan will be completed, which will include developing approximately 4 acres in Storey Park. Land swap negotiations are underway with the Dairy Board as well.
