Phase One Re-Opening

We are excited to announce that the (6) Membership Branches of our Akron Area Y  will re-open for limited hours, and with limited amenities on  Tuesday, May 26, 2020.

This means that the FITNESS AREA (weights and machines) will be the only parts of our branches that will be open for regular use.  At this time, during Phase One, our pools, group exercise rooms, gymnasiums, tracks, Child Watch and locker rooms will not be open.  Restrooms will be open.
