July 29, 2022

We are committed to improving your YMCA experience and creating a more welcoming space. As part of that plan, we will close our Arvada, Littleton and University Hills locations temporarily from August 29 to September 2 to complete some improvement projects. 

During this week, we encourage you to visit our Aurora, Downtown or Southwest Y locations – where there will be no full closure although the Southwest Y pool will be closed. Or try a Y360 workout which includes an extensive selection of on-demand and streaming virtual classes.
