Staff Reports • Updated Nov 30, 2016 at 9:00 AM

The Mt. Juliet Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee announced the grand opening of the new Eagle Park, and the official ribbon cutting of the Bicycle Playground BSA Eagle Scout project led by John Forth with Troop 150.

Eagle Park is at the future greenway trailhead in Mt. Juliet at the intersection of Fourth Avenue and West Division Street, west of the train station.

This event will be Saturday at 11 a.m.

While the public is invited, a special invitation is extended to the parents of preschool to elementary-age children to bring striders or bicycles to be the first to test ride the new age-appropriate course.

The mission of the bicycle playground is to provide a safe place off public roads for parents to teach small children the rules of the road and safe cycling.

Several local dignitaries, sponsors and supporters will be in attendance to greet the public.
