Westfield is going to have its own YMCA



Westfield, Indiana – On Wednesday, December 6, at 8:30 a.m., representatives of Westfield and the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis will break ground on the 13th YMCA center in central Indiana.

On ten acres of land donated by the Wheeler family, at the southwest corner of Wheeler Road and 181st Street, the Ascension St. Vincent YMCA in Westfield will be constructed next to the current Westfield Washington School natatorium.

The groundbreaking will take place precisely at 874 Virginia Rose Ave.

The projected launch date is set for January 2025.

The Ascension St. Vincent YMCA in Westfield, which spans 54,000 square feet, will include:

Twenty million of the $25 million fundraising target has been reached thus far. The City of Westfield, the Commissioners of Hamilton County, and Ascension St. Vincent have already committed transformative gifts for this new YMCA.

“The incredible support for this center demonstrates how eager this community is to have access to a best-in-class YMCA that highlights the power of partnerships and collaboration,” said Gregg Hiland, President and CEO of the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis. “Westfield has established itself as a place where sports, healthy living, and community come together, and we’re honored to enhance that unique identity and take a step closer to our vision of a healthier, more equitable, more connected community.”
