HAVE YOU HEARD THE BUZZ? BUILDING THE FUTURE

November 14, 2018

The Lake County YMCA is collaborating with the Willoughby-Eastlake School District and the City of Willoughby Senior Center to build Union Village in Willoughby, Ohio.

Union Village will have both individual and shared spaces.  There will be two indoor pools - the Y’s recreational and the school’s competitive pool, a four-court field house with indoor walking/jogging track, and the school classrooms and commons area are natural collaborative spaces for after school hours.

The NEW West End Y will feature co-ed steam and sauna rooms, and a warm-water pool which offers lap lanes, an instructional space and a splash and play area for children and families. The new facility will also feature a fully accessible second story Wellness Center.  The Wellness Center will have state of the art strength and cardio equipment, as well as two group multi-purpose exercise studios.

In the NEW West End Y lobby there will be space for teens gather, do homework, or socialize in a safe and inclusive environment. There will also be space for parents to wait and watch their family members participate in classes.  The ground floor of the new Y also features our child watch area and two more multi-purpose studios.

Through this collaboration, the Y will be better able to serve our community by providing education, wellness, and recreation for students and residents of western Lake County.

Did you know that 1 in every 6 YMCA participants receives financial assistance?

Thanks to our generous donors, last year we were able to provide nearly $963,000 in direct financial assistance to ensure the Y remains open to ALL!  Our West End YMCA serves more than 16,000 people through programs and membership and half of those members are youth and teens.
