New Hours of Operation

As of January 2, 2017, our regular hours of operation will change to 4:30 am–12:00 am.

We regularly review the way our members use the Y and make adjustments accordingly. Our recent reviews showed that this facility is rarely used after midnight. We’re confident these new hours of operation reflect our members’ needs and will allow us to direct resources more effectively and at times that would have the greatest impact. We’ll continue our regular reviews to make sure this change has a positive impact.
