Growing with Our Community: A Place For All

Growing with Our Community: A Place For All

With Elmore County being one of the fastest-growing counties in Alabama, naturally, the Grandview YMCA has grown in both summer camp participation as well as in membership in astronomical numbers over the last three years.

With that understanding, our YMCA knew we needed a new and improved facility. We went to work with community meetings trying to understand how we could best meet those needs.
We are pleased that in just a couple of months, we will unveil a new facility.

The new and improved facility will provide 5,000 families in the Millbrook area with a high quality of life through expanded YMCA recreational, wellness, and programmatic offerings.

Grandview YMCA new and improved facility

The YMCA exists to strengthen the foundations of our community and we are proud to serve thousands of children and families from across the River Region.

We are excited about showing you our expanded facility. This expansion consolidates all the membership activities on our campus under one roof and will allow us to better carry out our mission of “Putting Christian principles into practice, through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.” The last two words of that statement are “for all.”

Everyone is welcome at the Y, regardless of age, income, or background and has the opportunity to learn and thrive. I know you’ll be as excited as we are when you see what’s in store inside.

New Lobby

We are so much more than a “gym and swim”—we are a cause. When you are part of The Y, you are part of a community that transforms lives.

We have a variety of different membership options available, and thanks to the generosity of donors to our Annual Support Campaign, we even offer financial assistance for families who otherwise could not afford the Y.

When you’re a member at this facility, you have access to over 10 different YMCAs across the River Region and, if you travel, your membership travels with you through our national reciprocity plan.

Join The Y

newly expanded Fitness center

The newly expanded fitness center, double in size at 4,800 square feet, will be outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment.

Different training goals require different types of workouts. In our newly expanded space, you will find a first for the state of Alabama—EGYM Smart Strength machines which use five targeted methods to enhance the reliability with which you achieve personal fitness goals.

You might find equipment in other facilities, but what makes them different here? Here, these machines are simply tools—tools your wellness coach will use in helping you achieve your goals.

We offer a free wellness orientation to get you started on your wellness journey and our staff are always here if you have questions along the way. We have a variety of different programs and wellness incentives as you create healthy habits and travel on your path to your best self. We are committed to helping you reach your goals, big and small.

hallway to outside pool and door to gymnasium

As part of this expansion, our gymnasium is undergoing a renovation as well.  A brand-new wood floor is set to be installed during the first part of April. 

Our Youth Development Programs such as basketball and volleyball will be enhanced by this renovation and we’ll be able to continue teaching values such as Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility through team sports. 

Outside, we have two pools where lives are transformed by programs such as swim lessons & swim team, and families can reconnect to each other in a safe environment.   

new childwatch area

Safe & nurturing childcare is available in this area to support your family while you are here. The best part about the new childcare facility is that is conveniently adjacent to the wellness facility. An indoor playground will be installed here so parents can exercise with the peace of mind that their child will be cared for by fully trained and background checked staff.

Group Exercise has a new expanded home

After this historical expansion, group exercise will have a new expanded home. 

We offer a variety of group exercise classes that are always included in your membership. From beginner to advanced classes, we offer something for everyone.

During these classes, members do more than exercise together. They support each other, build relationships and hold each other accountable. These classes are always listed on our website or you can download the YMCA of Greater Montgomery App and find a list there.
