This YMCA opened its doors on June 3, 1971; it was the first modern YMCA facility built on the Peninsula. The upstairs fitness center and 3 racquetball courts were added in 1977 along with the outdoor track; and in May of 2003, renovations expanded the fitness center, added a new Child Watch room and Teen Center, and added a lift. The outdoor pavilion was built as an Eagle Scout project. In 2013, we renovated our sand volleyball court to a Splash Park which will be used by members and the community. We’re located near downtown Newport News and serve both business and family communities.
