Expansion Headquarters


The expansion of the C.W. Avery Family YMCA 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. Preparations for construction began on Sunday, October 1. The project is expected to be completed by spring 2018.
