The Ithaca YMCA was formed in 1868. Our current facility, built in 1980 and expanded in 2002, is home to a large and small pool, an NCAA-standard full size gymnasium, 3 racquetball courts, and much, much more. For those looking to get exercise or increase their fitness activity, we offer a cardio suite, circuit training area with 10-12 exercise stations, and a weight training room featuring our cross-training Octagon.
We are a family-friendly facility, with nearly all of our facilities geared towards all ages. Reserve space in the pool for family swim, spend time in the youth and family activity area (featuring pool tables, foosball, and table tennis), or play basketball or pickleball (available certain days) in the gym! We offer two child watch options for parents needing some help — Lots of Tots for ages 6 weeks to 3 years, and Stay and Play for ages 4 years to 9 years. There is a two-hour limit for child watch, and registration is required; call us or stop by the Welcome Center to schedule.
