We're open to YMCA of Greater Des Moines members 14+ years old! We're following a careful, phased-in approach to reopening, with the safety and well-being of members, staff and the community remaining our top priority. For information on what you can expect at the Y during this initial phase of reopening, click the What to Expect button below.
In the nearly 150 years the YMCA of Greater Des Moines has been serving central Iowa, the association has only had three downtown locations. After it opened in 2015 the Wellmark YMCA became the fifth. With an aquatic center, gym, indoor track, handball and racquetball courts, squash courts, indoor cycling studio and wellness center, the Wellmark Y is a state-of-the-art facility. We hope to see you soon.
All YMCA branches are closed on Christmas Day and Easter. Holiday hours will be observed New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. Check your branch Facebook page or our website homepage for specific holiday facility and programming hours.
