Facility Overview

The Mary Free Bed YMCA is a revolutionary new facility designed with everyone in mind, offering unique and accessible spaces that benefit the entire community.

Children have areas to play and be active, as well as leadership programs to ensure a brighter future. Families can come together to enjoy a day of sports on the multiple playing surfaces or leisurely swim in the pool. Healthy aging comes naturally here, as there are plenty of volunteer activities and a number of new hobbies and programs to be involved in. 

Now anyone can enjoy fully accessible sports such as wheelchair softball and basketball, and with the elimination of steps, curbs, and other obstacles, members can move about freely and easily inside the facility. Everything has its place, and for a unique, fully accessible health and wellness experience, that place is the Mary Free Bed YMCA.
