Parks & Recreation News & Notes:    


On July 9, 2015, we held a public meeting and presented the design concepts being developed for Meridian's next regional 77-acre park in south Meridian located on Lake Hazel Road near South Locust Grove.  In addition, on July 30, 2015, we held a second public meeting and presented the design concepts being developed for the 47-acre park in west Meridian located near the northwest corner of Cherry Lane and McDermott Road.  Attendees had the opportunity to view the proposed conceptual designs for the parks, as well as ask questions, provide suggestions, and offer feedback.

Your Ongoing Input Is Needed --  Meridian Parks & Recreation Master Plan


The Meridian Parks and Recreation Department is currently developing a Master Plan that will help guide the direction, growth and delivery of its services over the next ten years. Because we want the new plan to accurately reflect the needs and desires of the residents of Meridian, we welcome your input, ideas and suggestions. 

To help make it easy and convenient for you to share your thoughts about future parks and recreation services, we’ve implemented  Mindmixer --  a type of virtual town hall where you can discuss issues and share ideas at any time.
 To participate, simply go online to http://meridianparks.mindmixer.com and get started. Every couple weeks we’ll change up the topics and the conversations can continue.

You input and participation will help ensure that our parks, pathways, facilities, and programs meet our community’s needs, now and for the future!

If you have questions, please call the Meridian Parks and Recreation Office at (208) 888-3579.
