CROSSROADS YMCA - CROWN POINT
In 2019, the Crown Point YMCA completed a 120,000-square-foot building expansion and remodel project totaling $35 million. The White Family Foundations gifted $21 million, making it the Midwest’s largest privately-funded YMCA project. Crossroads YMCA’s mission aligns with the Foundation’s, which includes enhancing communities through access to quality education and offering enjoyable experiences that nurture Northwest Indiana’s development.
A few of the facility’s main features include two gymnasiums; an indoor three-lane track; a center for competitive gymnastics; a six-lane pool; and six program studios for cheer, dance, and group exercise. It also has a teaching kitchen, an early-learning center, male and female locker rooms, a zero-entry pool, an L-shaped outdoor pool, a juice and coffee bar, a wellness center focused on cardio, strength, and functional training, plentiful space for community gatherings, and much more.
By the fall of 2022, the Crown Point YMCA had completed a $6.5 million expansion project. Broken into two components, the first involved the construction of the new youth center, whereas the second added several acres on the east side of the complex.
