What To Expect
Allow us to take you on a VIRTUAL INTERACTIVE TOUR of the New YMCA on Robinwood Lake! Click on the headings for closer look! Head inside the facility by clicking on the YMCA itself!
The 60,030-square- foot YMCA facility, which will replace the both the Central YMCA, on Franklin Blvd., and South Gaston Family YMCA, on Union Road, will incorporate traditional Y health and wellness activities, youth and family activities, aquatics, and progressive skill programs that reflect the natural surroundings and opportunities offered at the site.
The Facility – The two-story facility will feature a Wellness Area overlooking the lake, indoor running track, gymnasium, multiple specialized group exercise studios, as well as an intergenerational community space.
The Aquatic Center – Our two-pool Aquatic Center was designed with both lap swimmers and swim lessons in mind. The lap pool will be set at 82 degrees while the recreational pool will be set at 86 degrees. This allows for multiple activities to take place at the same time.
Lake Access – The YMCA owns Robinwood Lake and will program this space for our Members to include boating, fishing, and special events.
The lakeside chapel – The chapel will be a multi-purpose space with the capability to host events, services, and family programming. With seating for 100 and room for additional in the grass there will be ample space available for churches to hold Sunday service as well as families to attend a movie night.
The woods and trails – The initial plans call for over 2 miles of trails throughout the wood, a day camp village with the ability to tent camp, and spaces for quiet meditation.
The Hearth and café – The Y lobby will be defined by a beautiful hearth and healthy café. This pairing allows Y Members to build community, grab a bite with friends, and spend the entire day at the lake.
