Welcome to Meridian, Idaho.
Centrally located in the Treasure Valley and recognizable by its distinctive yellow water tower, Meridian offers excellent schools, affordable real estate, and many recreational opportunities – all within a short distance of Boise. Originally a farming community, Meridian has grown into a city of its own with a wealth of resources for its residents – while maintaining its small town charm.
Although close in proximity to Boise, Meridian real estate is more affordable than Boise. Due to the enormous growth Meridian experienced in the 1990’s and early 2000’s, Meridian real estate can provides many types, sizes and price ranges in homes for sale. Within the downtown core of Meridian are older homes – built in the 1940’s and 1950’s – with their vintage charm. Moving to the outskirts of the city, newer and larger homes exist in neighborhoods close to schools, parks and shopping. One to 5 acre ranchettes which allow for animals or just wide open space can be found beyond the neighborhoods.
Some of the activities in the city of Meridian include Dairy Days in June, the Meridian Fire Department Salmon BBQ in August and the Scarecrow and Harvest Festival in October. Each Saturday night during the summer, Meridian Raceway has oval track car racing. The Meridian Symphony has performances throughout the year. Each Saturday from May through September, a Farmer’s Market is held in Meridian. Fresh produce, flowers and other items are available to purchase.
The Meridian School District is a large district encompassing all of Meridian and the cities of Eagle and Star. The District has been growing and is adding new school facilities each year. Rocky Mountain High School, the district’s fifth high school will be opening in the fall of 2008.
Meridian continues to be one of the most family-friendly communities in Idaho.
