The new Chilliwack YMCA will be officially open Monday, February 18th. 

On this day, all areas in our new YMCA centre of community (with the exception of the pool and hot tub) will be accessible for you to experience and enjoy from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The aquatic areas are scheduled to open sometime in late March 2019.

Come visit the YMCA and see everything we have to offer! 

To sign up for a new membership, valid photo ID and prepayment is required.  All members are able to reserve a swim lesson space in anticipation of our pool opening in late March. 

The Chilliwack YMCA

The Chilliwack YMCA serves more than 6,500 people each year—4,000 at the Hocking Avenue location alone. But the needs of the community are growing and the existing facility is outdated. That’s why we are working with the City of Chilliwack, residents, businesses, community service providers and other stakeholders to build an expanded and updated YMCA Centre of Community—a place to continue building resilient kids and strong families.

The new Chilliwack YMCA will be 36,700 square feet, 25% bigger than the current facility. The eastern side of the building will be demolished and re-built anew while the rest of the Y will be dramatically improved. With this expansion, you will enjoy the same programs you know and love at the Y as well as new programs:

  • Physical literacy programs to help kids develop critical movement skills
  • More adult group fitness classes
  • Expanded pool hours
  • More swimming lessons
Here’s what's new:
  • Gymnasium (4,250 sq. ft.)
  • Five multipurpose rooms (totalling 4,650 sq. ft.)
  • Conditioning floor (5,700 sq. ft.)
  • Social area to connect with your family and community (600 sq. ft.)
  • CycleFit studio (950 sq. ft.)
  • Family/Universal change room (1,800 sq. ft.)
  • Outdoor playground (1,000 sq. ft.)
Here’s what's been significantly renewed:
  • Expanded lobby and welcome area (1,500 sq. ft.)
  • Group fitness studio (1,950 sq. ft.)
  • Stretching and adaptive space (1,250 sq. ft.)
  • Y Play area (900 sq. ft.)
  • ​Pool (4,600 sq. ft.)

We are scheduled to be opening on February 18, 2019.
