Building A Stronger Community

The YMCA was founded as a place where all people could find hope, fellowship, and healing. By bringing together people from different backgrounds, perspectives and generations, we ensure that all have access to the opportunities, relationships and resources necessary to learn, grow and thrive. We are excited to share that based on feedback received from you, our YMCA family, we will be embarking on a renovation project at the Harriet and Joe Foster Family YMCA. By the fall of 2021 facility improvements will include:

  • Expanded Wellness Center
  • Intergenerational room
  • Makerspace
  • Modernized Welcome Center
  • Renovated group exercise studios
  • New outdoor pavilion

Renovations began on June 7th. While our wellness will be closed during the process, our facility will still be open for group exercise classes, child watch, pool usage and other programs

PLUS, we are excited to share that the project to heat our outdoor swimming pool has been completed! The pool is open and summer hours begin June 7. This will provide opportunities for participants of all ages to take part in aquatics programming year-round. We are excited for our renovations to begin. Watch for updates on construction and changes to our programming schedule coming soon!
