Our Facility

Welcome to Your Y

With great anticipation, on January 1, 2020, we opened the doors to our new YMCA at 298 College Street in Burlington, Vermont. Please read about the key features, watch the preview videos, and stop by for an in-person tour. We can’t wait for you to be a part of our community!

Video Tours

The following videos were prepared by the architects at Freeman French Freeman to provide a preview of our facility. Now that we are open, you should stop by for an in-person tour!

Tour 1:

Start outside the 298 College Street entrance to the lobby before being immersed in an inviting community space, head past member services, take a peek into member child care, head through the universal locker room, and emerge onto the pool deck of the aquatic center.

Tour 2:

Entering the north end of the lobby, you’ll head upstairs to the health and wellness floor, get a glimpse of the track and dynamic training area, look into two of our three dedicated group fitness studios, and end with the view of the cardio and weight equipment and the wall of windows that fill the space with natural light.

Not featured in these video animations, but key components in our new building, are the gymnasium, men’s and women’s locker rooms, and our state-of-the-art early child development wing.
