Planning For Our Future
In 2016, the Morris Community YMCA received a 12-acre land donation from the families who own and operate “D” Construction, Inc. Located just west of Morris Grade School on DuPont Avenue, the site will be the future home of Grundy County’s first full-facility YMCA.
Surrounded by property that is planned for residential development, the donated land is located adjacent to the existing baseball and softball fields and park land owned by the City of Morris. Its close proximity to the school and area residential neighborhoods makes the site an ideal location for a future YMCA facility.
The Morris Community YMCA has been a mainstay in Grundy County for more than a decade, fulfilling the need for before and after school care and sports programs. Since 2015, the Y has worked collaboratively with Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers to enhance the health and wellness of local residents. Together, the Y and the Hospital provide the community with access to unparalleled health and wellness programs and a wide variety of programming in a temporary facility in downtown Morris.
