In the nearly 150 years the YMCA of Greater Des Moines has been serving central Iowa, the association has only had three downtown locations. You can make that four with the new Wellmark YMCA. With a 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. Wellmark has charitably donated the parcel of land it owns directly next and west of the Y. The additional land will be used to accommodate a 50-meter swimming pool (and warm-up pool) with seating and amenities to host major aquatic events.
