Though the differences are subtle, there are three different parts of the great city of Meridian: east Meridian, west Meridian, and south Meridian.

East Meridian is usually defined as the area between Eagle Road (Highway 55), Meridian Road, and Interstate 84. This rectangle is an interesting part of the city. Even when Meridian was becoming a city, this area was still very rural, so there are large portions of it that are still broken up into larger lots with older ranch homes on them. However, interspersed between these larger rural lots, there are some great new neighborhoods that are not only beautiful, but spacious, and comfortable as well.

However, if you don’t want to go shopping, just north of Village parking lot is Kleiner Park. This park was transformed by the city and the Kleiner family from Julius M. Kleiner’s farm. The park is complete with an outdoor amphitheater, fishing pond, playground equipment, and acres upon acres of open grassy hills and valleys. It is open from sunset to sundown every day for residents and visitors to enjoy.
