Restored Victorian mansions, a restaurant that opened in 1870, gristmills, and old general stores add to the historical grace and elegance of Meridian. The town features lakes and a 65-foot waterfall area known as Dunn's Falls. The unique attraction once powered a gristmill and a Stetson hat manufacturer. Bonita Lakes is a 3,300-acre park owned by the city that is situated on three lakes and includes the Long Creek Reservoir and Lakeview Municipal Golf Course. The park features nature trails, a jogging and walking track, biking, equestrian trails, a pavilion, picnic facilities, boat ramps, paddle boats, concessions, and fishing. Bonita Lakes is also the future home of the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Center. Historic Carroll Richardson Gristmill is open for tours. The park is a natural wildlife refuge with a picnic area with barbecue grills, gristmill pond, hiking, and swimming areas.
