First Wall up at the New Winston Y!

The first wall is now up at the site of the new Winston Family YMCA in Riverside!!! We are looking forward to opening the new 72,000 square foot facility in late Summer 2016. We are grateful for the generous donors who are supporting our efforts.

The new facility will be about 8,000 square feet bigger than the current one, which was built in the 1950s.

Among the changes and additions in the new building:

The fitness area will be 12,000 square feet, twice the size it is now, and will have an indoor running track above it.

The indoor lap pool will be 25 meters long with six lanes, as opposed to the four lanes and 25 yards it is now. A second, warmer pool will be for children’s swim lessons and senior citizens classes.

The women’s locker room, which is now much smaller than the men’s, will be increased to be the same size.

There will be a cafe in the lobby and two “spiritual wellness” centers for prayer, meditation or just a quiet place.

The Luther and Blanche Healthy Living Center in the Y will be open to the public and include Florida Blue, Baptist Health and Brooks Rehabilitation.
