This downtown branch of the YMCA opened in August 2002. The Helen G. Nassif YMCA features three gyms, 6-lane pool, five racquetball/handball courts, and locker rooms for men, women, boys, and girls, as well as a Family Changing Room. A sauna and steam room are in each of the men’s and women’s locker rooms. Much more can be seen in the video tour of this branch.

While working out, patrons may leave their children with well qualified staff in our Child Watch room on the first floor of the Helen G. Nassif YMCA. Child Watch is FREE for members. Parking, both on- and off-street, is available. The building is located on the city’s trail system. The Metro Office of the YMCA of the Cedar Rapids Metropolitan Area is housed on the second floor.
