Katy, TX News (January 6, 2017) It’s just weeks away from the Feb. 1 grand opening of the new YMCA at Katy Main Street. As the final touches are put on the 41,000 square-foot facility, the YMCA of Greater Houston is inviting the public to preview the premises on designated days beginning Jan. 7.
Though still in the final stages of construction, the center will offer impressive glimpses into Katy’s new state-of-the-art YMCA, which features strength training and cardio equipment, group exercise rooms, a basketball gym, an outdoor heated swimming pool, child watch rooms, cycle studio and gathering areas where members can meet for coffee. It will offer health and wellness activities, aquatics, youth sports, after school care, summer day camp, summer sports clinics, teen programs, senior activities and more. Dates for preview tours are: Jan. 7, 14, 21, and 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Jan. 29 from 1 to 5 p.m.; and Jan. 30-31 from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. After the center opens, anyone is welcome to tour the facility at any time.
Those who join before Feb. 1 will pay no join fee – a savings of up to $125. New members will receive citywide memberships that will give them access to the YMCA at Katy Main Street, 1350 Main St., the Monty Ballard YMCA at Cinco Ranch, 22807 Westheimer Pkwy., and all other YMCAs in the Greater Houston area.
The $12 million YMCA at Katy Main Street will accommodate the growing population of Katy, serving residents in west and north Katy and in neighboring communities. It is expected to receive more than 400,000 visits a year. It will provide approximately $250,000 in community assistance and program/membership scholarships and create more than 200 area jobs.
To apply for a membership before Feb. 1, go to https://search.ymcahouston.org/join or visit the Monty Ballard YMCA at Cinco Ranch or any YMCA in the Greater Houston area. Once the YMCA at Katy Main Street opens, membership applications can be taken at the new center.
