The “Excitement is Building” for a revitalized state-of-the-art facility, which will provide more efficient space and necessary upgrades to ensure the strength and accessibility of our programs. The renovation project will focus on developing an inviting community gathering space, providing a dynamic facility that allows community members to connect with each other. The refurbished space and equipment will be a place to focus on health and wellness— a place to thrive, learn and grow. The good news is that our YMCA will continue to stay open throughout the renovation, and additionally, you will also have access to all the YMCA’s in Metropolitan Washington, and in the country.



We are excited to announce that phase one of the renovation is complete! The lobby, locker rooms, and universal changing room are scheduled to open on Monday, January 7th!
