About the Downtown YMCA

The Downtown Family YMCA has been serving the Omaha community since 1866, having occupied its current location at 430 S 20th Street since 1969. The Downtown YMCA acts as a meeting center for all people, accommodating adults and children alike. With its gymnasium, racquetball courts, cardio and weight equipment, Olympic Lifting room, group exercise rooms, Childwatch center and swimming pool, the Downtown YMCA is more than a place to exercise. It’s a place to grow.

 

►PLEASE NOTE: The Downtown YMCA will reopen on Thursday, January 7. The facility might look disordered; we hope to have everything back to normal soon. We can't wait to welcome you back!

Please note: 

 

  • All programming including swim lessons, group fitness, and Childwatch will run as scheduled. 
  • As we continue our repairs, some areas & equipment may be inaccessible.
  • The Men's and Women's Fitness Centers will be closed for an undetermined length of time.
  • Please follow any posted signage in the building.
