YMCA to Hold Grand Reopening
After more than a year of construction, the Greater Portland YMCA will complete phase one of its renovation and expansion efforts this week. The Y will host a grand reopening celebration on Thursday, April 27th, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. YMCA middle schoolers will provide the tours of the new facility on High Street.
The event will celebrate the completion of ‘Phase One’ renovations; including the new High Street entrance, community meeting space, family program space, and the warm water instructional pool (brought back after 3 years of being closed).
This expansion and renovation at the Greater Portland YMCA is part of a larger organization revitalization project. In Portland, the campaign began with the construction of the new affordable housing development on High Street, and then moved into the building itself. Phase two in Portland includes a new roof over the pool wing, and renovations to the squash, racquetball and handball courts – all of which will take place this summer and fall.
