Help Protect Chester’s Favorite Swimming Hole: Rainbow Rock    

Rainbow Rock

The Vermont River Conservancy seeks your support to protect public access to this community treasure—a beautiful swimming and fishing hole on the Williams River.

Located just off Green Mountain Turnpike, only a mile from the village center, Rainbow Rock is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the Williams River, play and swim with friends and family, and cool down or cast a line.Map of Rainbow Rock Parcel

VRC has been offered the opportunity to purchase Rainbow Rock and protect access forever.  We ask for your help in protecting access now.

Once protected, the Town of Chester will own the permanently protected 1.84 acre property, and residents and visitors alike will be able to enjoy Rainbow Rock for generations to come.

The Vermont River Conservancy has secured most of the $50,000 in funding needed from Vermont Housing and Conservation Board and private foundations.

Now we need $2,000 by the end of August to ensure Rainbow Rock is protected forever.

Help us protect this community treasure: donate to Rainbow Rock today!

Please join this community effort to buy the land, conserve it with a public access easement, improve accessibility with natural stone steps, and ensure it is well maintained for all to enjoy.
