After 15 months of construction, the new Winston Family YMCA opened to the public in August 2016. The new building was designed with top-of-the-line features replacing the aging Yates YMCA. The 12,000 sq. ft. wellness center offers a place for members to seek some peace and quiet, and offers rehabilitation programs. The wellness center also features an indoor running track with rubberized surface surrounded by glass offering views of the St. John’s River. The gymnasium was built to offer a full basketball court as well as two short courts and a volleyball court.
The Newton Family Aquatic Center offers a 25-yard lap pool built to accommodate competitive swimming programs, aquatic exercise and fitness programs as well as swim lessons. A second pool provides an area for therapy, relaxation and additional aquatic exercise programs in a warm water pool.
