Schedule of Upgrades

Exciting improvements are coming soon to your Y!

To allow for these important renovations, we'll need to close some areas and adjust our programming for short periods of time. We know how important it is for you to be aware of these closures in advance so you can plan accordingly, so we'll be providing ongoing updates on our progress here, and on our Twitter account @YMCAGTA. We appreciate your patience and can't wait for your new-and-improved Y to be ready!

  • Women's General Change Room: Although we're still finishing up, we won't need to close the change room during regular operating hours anymore.
  • Roof: Contractors are already at work replacing our roof, and are scheduled to finish in late January. This may periodically impact some of our program areas, and updates about any related closures will be posted here as they are scheduled.
  • Training Pool: To allow for regularly scheduled maintenance, the Training Pool will close on December 17 at 5:00 PM and re-open at 8:00 AM on December 25.
  • Fitness Studio: In order for us to refinish the floor, the studio will be closed from December 27-29. It will re-open on December 30.
  • Change Rooms: The Men's General and both Family Change Rooms will be getting a complete refresh. The start date for this work is still to be decided, but is tentatively set for mid to late December.
  • Gymnasium: In order for us to refinish the floor, the gymnasium will be closed from January 2-5. It will re-open on January 6.
  • Individual Conditioning Room: We're planning to install some brand new equipment and replace the flooring. In order to minimize disruptions to your routine, the floor will be installed in three phases, with the first phase beginning in January. We expect the conditioning room upgrades to be completed by mid-February. Updates on the schedule will be posted here as soon as they're available.
  • New Fitness Studio and Functional Space: Squash Court #3 and our current small functional training space will be renovated into a larger and fully accessible functional training space. The stretching room and the Racquetball/Handball court will be renovated and turned into a new fitness studio. This work is scheduled to begin after the Individual Conditioning room has been re-floored, so likely not until mid-February or March.
