The original Eden YMCA building on Kennedy Street housed a gym, an olympic-size swimming pool, a game room, ceramics shop, canteen area, and teen room and offices. Additions to the building included the F.C. “Buck” Dumaine Youth Center that included a gym, dance room (now a state-of-the-art aerobics room), and multi-purpose room. Also added at the same time were two racquetball courts, and renovation of the existing building included separate fitness centers for men and women. In the 1990s, the separate fitness centers were combined into one fitness area, which now includes a cardio-vascular room, just added in 2000. In the late 1990s, reconstruction of the new clay-composite tennis courts was completed along with playground and picnic shelter. Fields for almost every kind of outdoor sport and an asphalt outdoor track have been added since the YMCA was built in 1971. If you haven’t been to your YMCA lately, you owe it to yourself to pay us a visit. Fitness, fun, and fellowship are what you’ll find!
