For immediate release:
YMCA to Re-open Northside Location
The YMCA of Fredericton is a place where everyone can be connected and feel a sense of belonging. The YMCA is a charity that believes that everyone should have the opportunity to reach their full potential through the development of a healthy body, mind and spirit.
With outreach as a strategic priority of the YMCA of Fredericton and a significant number of Frederictonians calling Northside home, it is critical that the YMCA have a physical presence on the city’s Northside to help reach unserved and existing YMCA members. The YMCA is uniquely positioned to support all members of our community. Through collaborative partnerships, innovative program solutions and a modern and welcoming centre, we offer every person in our community an opportunity to belong with the Y.
Keeping the mission of the YMCA as a focal point of the reopening of the Fredericton North YMCA, the facility will be an innovative approach that offers a hybrid model of training which will appeal to a wide range of new and existing members. Whether you are a general fitness enthusiast or an elite athlete, this wellness centre will support your goals. The general design of the wellness centre is divided into eight sections, each focusing on a specific area of physical performance. There will also be a section with couches and a television, which provides a space for coaching and also a place for members to socialize and build connections. Recognizing that the YMCA is more than a gym, this renewed space will serve as a hub to further the mission and expand the reach of the Y in Fredericton.
“As a YMCA member for over 12 years who lives and works on the northside, I will appreciate having two facilities to choose from.” -Karen Grant
The YMCA will be able to partner with community groups and local sports teams to provide a space for team training. The Fredericton North YMCA will also be a benefit to existing Y members, as access to this location will also be included in their YMCA membership.
We firmly believe that through the support of the community we can create a positive impact and bring about meaningful change in Fredericton. We look forward to welcoming you to the Fredericton North YMCA, located in Willie O’Ree Place, in February 2024.
