MOUNTAIN RD. DOCK PROJECT
Some may not be aware, but there is an access to the lake near 205 Mountain Road that is owned by the Town of Ridgefield. For many years the neighbors in that area maintained a dock to ease loading of their boats. As the dock fell into disrepair, it was pulled out of the lake with the intention of fixing it up and returning it to the water. Unfortunately, that project stalled. In discussions with neighbors, the RLA has agreed to split the cost of a new dock, and then the RLA would maintain the dock in the future. To that end, if you would like to donate to the new Mountain Road Dock click https://www.rainbowlake.org/membership/specific-projects/.
Rainbow Lake resident & official RLA animator Chris Williams has graciously designed some very cool Rainbow Lake merchandize that is now available for purchase, with all proceeds going to the RLA. T-shirts, coffee mugs, car magnets & other groovy swag can be found HERE.
An important reminder to Rainbow Lake residents:
When raking or blowing leaves, please DO NOT dispose of your leaves in the lake.
