Accessible. Inclusive. Community driven.
The Bettie Allard YMCA is designed with you in mind.
Welcome to the YMCA of Greater Vancouver! For more than 135 years, the YMCA has been a charity dedicated to serving and supporting communities, and helping people of all ages live healthier and happier lives. We couldn’t be more excited to be extending our mission to the Tri-Cities, and providing this diverse and vibrant community with access to our valuable and life-changing programs and services.
The new Bettie Allard YMCA will positively transform people’s lives. Programming in health, fitness and aquatics, family development, youth leadership, and immigrant, employment and mental wellness services will give people the support they need to thrive.
The Bettie Allard YMCA Features
The new Bettie Allard YMCA is a 55,000 square foot modern centre of community comprised of carefully designed spaces to deliver a wide range of YMCA programs and services. These spaces are safe, inviting, accessible and vital gathering spaces where everyone can come together to connect and grow.
Health and Fitness: So many supported and self-directed ways to get moving—gymnasium, walking track, fitness studios for group classes and strength and conditioning zones
Aquatics: Learn critical water safety skills, exercise and have fun. Features include a swimming pool for exercise and a warm water tank for family play, swim lessons, therapy and fitness
Social Connections: Throughout the YMCA, you’ll find places to connect with others including a café, plazas and rooftop terraces
Family-Focus: A dedicated Family Development Centre and ‘Y Play’ area to play, learn and connect
The new Bettie Allard YMCA is scheduled to open in late 2022. To stay informed about the project and ensure you don’t miss out on important membership information, we invite you to join our Bettie Allard YMCA email list.
