Mt. Juliet, TN, is located thirty miles from the center of Nashville and has gained nearly 50% of the population over the last decade due to its rapid growth as a suburb.
Since its founding in 1972, the city's population has steadily increased. However, a steep rise began around 2005, possibly due to significant development, including The Shoppes of Renaissance Square and Lebanon Road's recent revitalization.
Before the mid-2000s, when development began, most residents lived on large rural properties on the outskirts of the city.
The annual Mt. Juliet Jamboree summer festival, which includes live music and carnival games, occurs in Mount Juliet. This event has been a part of the city's attractions since 1984 and is held at Robert Rose Park.
Places to See
The city of Mt. Juliet has two public courses, both of which are nine-hole layouts. In the 1980s, the first course was built on Lebanon Road off I-40 West. A 9-hole course near McEwen that was constructed in the 1990s is the other one.
The park is adjacent to Percy Priest Lake, which has several water activities and boating. There are three boat ramps: one at the lake's eastern end, one at its western end, and one midway through the lake.
The City of Mt. Juliet also has seven parks that are maintained by the Parks & Recreation Department. Robert Rose Park, home to picnic areas, an amphitheater, a playground, athletic fields, walking trails, and more, is the largest park in Mt. Juliet.
