Attention Members - Pool Closure for Renovations:

June 24, 4 pm-July 17, 5:30 am

As a leader in aquatics programs that have served the Oakland community for multiple generations, having an Aquatics Center at the Downtown Oakland YMCA is paramount to achieving our mission. Just as important is the pride that our community has in our facility and the programs we offer in it. Through our water safety and healthy living programs, our pool is one of the main areas of our facility that receives the most use by all ages, infants through seniors.

To ensure that our facility supports the best aquatics programs we can offer, we will be closing our pool for 3 weeks to conduct needed improvements to our pool and its surrounding area. The renovation and pool closure will begin on Saturday, June 24 at 4 pm. We will Re-Open our pool on Monday, July 17 at 5:30 am.

We are excited to create an Aquatics Center that our Members and our greater Oakland community can feel proud of, knowing that it will continue to help our community thrive for generations to come.

About the Downtown Oakland YMCA

The Y is a diverse organization of women, men and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.

Since no two communities are exactly alike, no two Ys are exactly alike. We bring men, women and children—just like you—together. Our shared commitment to our communities ensures the opportunities we create for all to learn, grow and thrive are ones that endure. While our programs and facilities are always based on the unique needs and interests of our communities, every Y has one thing in common: our people.
