About the Meridian Area

Though sometimes considered a suburb of Boise, the Meridian area is a city in its own right. With a population of around 100,000, Meridian is the third-largest city in Idaho. The city’s population has experienced significant growth in recent years, leading to the development of brand new communities. 

Meridian is one of the nicest areas in all of Idaho. The city is brimming with families and young professionals, making it a vibrant place to live. As a family-oriented community, residents enjoy a close-knit suburban feel, and parents feel safe allowing their children to play on the streets and in the parks without constant supervision. 

The main attractions in the city also cater to children. In the spring and summer, families flock to Roaring Springs Water Park to shoot down countless waterslides of varying speeds, bob in the wave pool and float down the lazy river. Right next door is the Wahooz Family Fun Zone, another popular attraction. Some of the indoor attractions include laser tag, bumper cars, a ropes course, and a climbing wall. Go-karts, bumper boats, and miniature golf can be enjoyed outdoors as well.

The city also boasts three beautiful green spaces: Storey Park, Settlers Park, and Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park. Children and adults alike can be seen playing sports and taking walks in these public recreation areas.
