The Winona Family YMCA is proud to be a crossroads for all people, whether from different social worlds to different economic worlds.
We are a community.
We are passionate about community. But after almost 135 years, the Y’s sense of community has become harder to maintain because our current building physical inaccessible. Our new Y will give us the tools to be more efficient and suited for today's needs, allowing us to renew our commitment to the community!
A BRIGHT FUTURE
The new facility right in between Winona Health and the beautiful East lake Winona, will be modern, accessible, more efficient, sustainable, and welcoming.
It will be designed for our specific community needs.
Our new 65,000 square foot building will transform the Y and create a revitalized community partner poised to offer the facility and programs that our community needs and deserves, including:
Better accessibility with much more parking.
Modern, bright, and inviting fitness, weight, and group exercise facilities.
A light-filled 6-lane pool with co-ed sauna, whirlpool and steam room right on the pool deck for safer enjoyment.
A mixed-use gymnasium.
Fully ADA compliant space with an elevator and universally accessible design.
Energy efficiency that benefits the environment and the bottom line.
Home of Winona Health’s Physical Therapy, Speech Language Pathology, and Occupational Therapy services.
Office space for community partners Live Well Winona and American Red Cross.
The new facility is projected to greatly increase membership, restoring the Y’s revenue engine and generating the funds needed to support community service programs and scholarships.
Why do we need a new YMCA?
Our current facility is outdated, inefficient, and inaccessible to many in our community. It has become a barrier to membership and threatens our ability to provide many of the Y’s crucial services. A new facility will revitalize the Y, increase member retention, and boost membership upon opening, providing much needed revenue for years to come.
What will happen to the current YMCA building?
We have sold our current building, but have an agreement in place to stay in the space until construction is complete on the new facility.
Where will the new YMCA be built?
902 Parks Avenue, on the campus of Winona Health facing Lake Winona.
