  • C.W. Avery Family YMCA Expansion

    Phase 2 Underway

    Phase 2 of the C.W. Avery Family YMCA expansion project, which includes the expansion of the Wellness Center, is now underway. In addition to significantly increasing the square-footage of the Wellness Center, the Y will be adding new group exercise space and increasing the number of cardio and strength machines available to members.

    This new space will provide health seekers with limitless opportunities to train smarter and more effectively. The project is expected to be completed by spring 2018.
