Facilities

There are several scattered parks. The most popular park is Lilly Vale Oval, which has a sporting field (cricket pitch), which also, probably, operates as a flood basic, a playground, a picnic table, and a community shed, as well as a BBQ for public use. Next to this park, is a shed, from which operates the local rural fire brigade. Lilly Vale Oval, was once used for an annual rodeo hosted by the P&C of Meringandan State School. The P&C also used to run Christmas Carols in the park, but they were also cancelled for lack of funding. Small church groups still used the park for annual carols nights. In the east of Meringandan West, there is a small cemetery. Meringandan State School which offers grades P-6, is on the border between Meringandan, and Meringandan West.
