2016 Williams Lake Classic Racers – Events Coordinator Jimmy Martin (left) & Project Manager Tim Allred (right)

The Williams Lake Project honors the legacy of the former Williams Lake Hotel as a special place that created lasting memories for residents of Ulster County. We continue this legacy as an active member of the vibrant Rosendale Community and are proud of our many local partnerships. Since 2007, we have hosted dozens of public recreational events, races, educational and research programs.

For information on holding events at Williams Lake in 2017, please email Jimmy Martin, Communication & Events Coordinator.
