This Lake and Park has been created by the
New South Wales Department of Public
Works, Cooma-Monaro Shire Council and the
Lions Club of Nimmitabel for the benefit of
the Nimmitabel Community.
The name commemorates the contribution to
many district organisations by members of
the pioneer Williams family, descendants of
John and Sarah Williams, who settled on this
land in 1839.
This portion of Crown Land was reserved in
Nimmitabel`s town plan for Public Recreation
and Water Supply.
