About Us!
Meet our Board and Staff

Welcome to Center At The Park!

We’re excited you found us, and eagerly await to meet you at the Center!

As part of the Meridian community for more than 70 years, the members own and operate the Center as a non-profit organization. We are self-governing with an elected board of directors and officers who serve strictly as volunteers. The City of Meridian does not govern or dictate our activities or operation.


We rely on our generous donors, partnerships, membership dues, and project grants, advertising, fundraisers, event rentals, boutique sales, transportation revenue, and bingo to fund the Center and our activities. 

Our mission is dedicated to enriching the lives of all older adults by developing, providing, and promoting a climate of respect, trust, and support. We offer active, healthy, and creative activities, along with opportunities for life enhancement programs to those we serve.
