About · Fremont/Newark YMCA


The Fremont/Newark YMCA opened its doors in 1972, dedicated to serving the tri-city communities of Fremont, Newark and Union City. Then, we offered primarily childcare and youth programs. In 2004, as the growing need for healthy lifestyles became more apparent, we expanded our health and fitness programming by opening a 2,400 square-foot fitness facility.
