COMING SOON! OUR NEW Y FACILITY
The Family Y is building a modern new facility at its Mahackeno campus along the Saugatuck River that will allow us to serve our members and entire community in exciting new ways. Construction began in February 2013, and our new home is expected to be open in September.
Our new Y will begin as a 54,000 sq. ft. building that will include a 10-lane, 25-yard lap pool and adjacent warm-water family/teaching/ therapeutic pool; Health & Wellness Center with expansive views of the Saugatuck River; multi-purpose Gymnasium; three group-fitness studios; a Kids' Club child watch area; five locker rooms, including one for those with dependent care; and other amenities of a modern, family-oriented Y facility.
Founded in 1923, our Y is a charitable, nonprofit membership organization that welcomes people of all ages, races, religions, abilities and financial circumstances.
The Family Y's mission is to develop youth, promote healthy living and foster a sense of social responsibility. Our current membership of 5,000 represents nearly 15 percent of our community and 25 percent of all local youth.
