Home » New YMCA Opens on Indy’s West Side
A new YMCA is now opened on Indianapolis westside! The 56,000-square-foot OrthoIndy Foundation YMCA at 5315 N. Lafayette Rd. boasts an indoor pool and track, gymnasium, teaching kitchen, and outdoor terrace, among many other amenities. It’s also the first YMCA in the country to house an onsite medical clinic for veterans. A striking 8-foot SALUTE sculpture to honor all veterans greets guests at the Y’s entrance.
The OrthoIndy Foundation YMCA is one of 12 in Greater Indianapolis and the area’s sixth new YMCA this decade.
A campaign to build a YMCA in Westfield, IN began this earlier this year.
