COMMITTED TO OUR COMMUNITY
Downtown YMCA Hours and Parking Updates
For the past 90+ years, strengthening community has been at the heart of our mission. As you know, parking in the Downtown area has been challenging for the past several months. In order for us to continue to serve our community to our greatest capacity, the following changes need to be made. Rest assured that we will continue to work to meet your health and wellness needs despite these changes.
We appreciate your passionate and continued support of the Downtown Y’s mission to healthy living and social responsibility. Be on the look out for new group exercise schedules at the first of the year. Our overarching goal is to offer the most popular classes at the most convenient times, within our new abridged hours.
Effective January 1, 2017 the new hours for the Downtown YMCA building** and pool will be as follows:
*Monday-Thursday: 5:15 a.m.- 7:00 p.m.
*Friday: 5:15 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Saturday: 7:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Parking at the Downtown YMCA:
.Unfortunately, due to limited resources, the following parking changes must be made:
Effective January 1,2017 we can no longer offer the complimentary parking option at the Surface Lot at 39 E. Spring Street & Pearl Street.*
Meter Parking: There are more than 200 meters within a 4 block radius of the Y that are generally available. We realize that a great majority of these meters are currently bagged or inaccessible due to construction; we believe that these will be available once the construction is complete, however please contact the City of Columbus for more specific information regarding the meters and/ or construction in the area.
Meter Hours: Monday - Saturday,before 8:00 a.m.: FREE
Sundays & holidays, anytime: FREE
It is very important to read all restrictions before leaving your car at a meter.
*We will continue to provide Safety Escorts upon request. Visit our Welcome Desk to learn more about this service.
Did you know? Our Eldon and Elsie Ward Family YMCA is conveniently located just 2.5 miles from the Downtown YMCA with ample free parking available. 130 Woodland Avenue, Columbus, OH.
We understand that these changes may be a difficult adjustment. We appreciate your understanding and are here to answer any questions you may have.
