Project Description

Just three years after our team completed the $34 million addition to the Southlake YMCA, here we are again! Our friends at the Y knew they had to create more space since their membership more than tripled in size.

Driven by unprecedented growth, the 15,000 square foot expansion includes:

🤸‍♀️ Gymnastics center for cheer and ninja classes
🕺 Dance studios
🌱 Outdoor sensory courtyard
⚽ Turf Fields

The gymnastics center will also be used for cheer and ninja classes. Complete with two spring floors, a foam pit, uneven bars, balance beams and warp walls, the space is about three times bigger than the old gymnastics center.

The sensory courtyard will be catered toward the Y’s pre-K programs, though it is open to all members. Slated to be completed in mid-June, the courtyard will help children learn using all five senses. The outdoor space will have a music wall adorned with instruments such as bongos and chimes. There will be a sand and water station, a treehouse, a paint and chalk wall, a garden and a calming area complete with a hammock.

Crossroads YMCA CEO, Jay Buckmaster said it best – “…having a place to belong is important.” Projects like this make our hearts happy.
