Improvements to Downtown Facility

The Y has invested more than $500,000 in improvements to the SwedishAmerican Riverfront YMCA so far in 2018. We want to keep you informed on the improvements as we plan and execute them around our facilities. This is, afterall, your Y!

You may have noticed a large crane on our roof recently. The facility got a much-needed new roof at $235,000. Additionally, we upgraded the pool ventilation system in the south pool area. This upgrade cost $265,000. This upgrade creates necessary improvement to the air quality of our competition pool. Swimmers will notice more comfortable temperatures, lower humidity and fresher air, creating a healthier and cleaner environment for all our swimmers, especially our adult and youth competitive swimmers who spend many hours in the pool each week. 

The Y and its Board of Directors are committed to facility improvements at this location and across our association. We are thankful to our capital campaign donors  - including SwedishAmerican – for allowing us to raise the funds to do necessary improvements. The staff and board are building a priority list of upcoming projects that will be shared soon.
