    Our Projects

    What's going on when your local Y is closed? We'll be hard at work on: 

    • Pool Improvements: We'll drain pools and deep clean them with an acid wash. At some pools, we'll be repairing large areas of tiles. These projects keep our pools safe, beautiful places to learn how to or practice swimming.

    • Gym and Fitness Classrooms: We'll strip and refinish the hardwood floors. This process is a little smelly, so it's best members and staff are out of the building as much as possible while it dries.

    • All Areas: Throughout the rest of the facility, we'll deep clean and refinish the floors, clean our air ducts and replace filters, and move unused equipment to create more space for the group classes you love.

    Your YMCA of Greater Seattle membership grants you unlimited access to all 14 local Ys, including 11 aquatics centers. Browse nearby locations, or find a live or on-demand workout you can do in the Virtual Y.
