A project made possible thanks to contributions from the City of Marion and over 200 businesses, families and individuals.


We are taking this time between the closing of our current facility and the opening of the new Marion location to prepare to safely welcome you on opening day!  The Marion YMCA is currently closed so that we are able to move staff over to the new YMCA for training, move necessary equipment, and provide our staff with enough time to prepare and get to know the new building.
