Just over a year ago this month, I had the honor of being appointed by Mayor Tammy to serve you on the Meridian Parks and Recreation Commission. My first commission meeting was our Parks and Pathways tour, and with the success of our 2019 Parks and Pathways tour this week, I can confidently say that not only is the state of our Meridian Parks and Recreation areas strong, but our parks are the premier parks in the Treasure Valley if not more.

When Mayor Tammy first took office in 2004/05, Meridian could count its parks and recreation areas on two hands, with a grand total of 8. Now, our community, much larger than it was over a decade ago, is able to proudly boast a solid 24 parks and recreation areas, our newest being our new regional park, Discovery Park in South Meridian.

Dom Gelsomino is the vice president of the Meridian Parks and Recreation Commission.
