Eleven miles west of downtown Boise is Meridian, Idaho. This family-focused community has continued to experience an impressive population growth since 2000. As of 2013, Meridian’s estimated population was 83,596 residents. The city’s leadership encourages residents to live active, healthy lifestyles while keeping connected to each other. Year-round, the city actively works to develop and sustain a sense of community with events, festivities, workshops and classes. Two attractions that make Meridian unique in the Treasure Valley are the Meridian Speedway and the notable water tower located nearby the racetrack.
The Meridian Speedway has been providing high-octane fun for fans since 1951. The Speedway began as a flat 1/4th mile oval track which was paved in 1962. Races on this track run from April to September and feature various racing divisions, such as late-models, super-modified, and stock cars. The Speedway also has a “1/8th mile dirt track oval featuring speedway motorcycles, mini-sprints and outlaw carts plus other divisions.”
Nearby the Speedway is Meridian’s prominent yellow water tower which can easily be seen from the freeway heading back from Boise. Because it is onion-shaped, some locals affectionately refer to the water tower as ‘the onion.’ The water tower is one of two towers within the city and has a “storage capacity of 500,000 gallons” of water. According to the city’s water division, the combined water storage capacity for both towers is 2.5 million gallons. A third water tower is currently under construction.
