Exciting Pool Improvements

Our pools are getting some exciting improvements beginning in January. We can’t wait for our members to experience fresher, crisper air and cleaner water at the Y!  To complete this large project, our Natatorium (pool area) will need to be closed for the month of January. We apologize for this inconvenience, but are excited for our members and the community to have an amazing new pool experience, once completed! Keep an eye on this page for updates as this project progresses!
