Lake Iroquois Recreation District

The Lake Iroquois Recreational District was formed in 1958 by the four towns of Williston, Richmond, Hinesburg and St. George, the first three of which border the lake. The voters agreed in all four towns to provide three cents tax on the grand list to raise money to fund the district. The purpose was "to provide safe, orderly and healthful swimming and recreational conditions for the inhabitants of the towns of Hinesburg, Richmond, Williston and St. George at the north ends of Lake Iroquois. The towns offered swim lessons and maintained the beach and snack bar shed. There was also a house trailer for the beach custodian.

The Lake Iroquois Recreation District beach area, along with its 150 acres of open land, continues to serve the district towns of Hinesburg, Richmond, St. George, and Williston, as well as all non-residents. The district lands provide access to swimming, picnicking, playground equipment, and walking trails.

The beach is area is open for the summer season from Memorial Day to Labor Day and continues to be a beautiful and affordable local recreation area. Annual beach passes are available ONLY at the beach.
