Troy and Schenectady YMCAs Reopening on May 1

All 8 Capital District YMCAs will be open 7 days a week

ALBANY, NY – The Capital District YMCA is reopening two locations, Troy and Schenectady, on May 1. The Troy location has been closed since March 2020 and the Schenectady location has been closed since January 2021.

“From providing childcare to essential workers to food drives, the CDYMCA never stopped serving our community during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said CDYMCA President and CEO David Brown. “We are excited to open our buildings again.”

All eight locations will be open seven days a week. Membership to the CDYMCA includes access to all YMCA facilities, group exercise classes, and discounted childcare rates.

The YMCA has had a presence in both Troy and Schenectady since the 1880s. The YMCA also operates two affordable housing complexes in Schenectady, Mount Pleasant Commons and 845 Commons. 

“As we look to rebuild and recover from the pandemic, we are very excited to see the re-opening of the Capital District YMCA branch in downtown Schenectady,” said Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy. “The YMCA is a critical asset for health, wellness, and recreational activities in our community and we look forward to their continued partnership in Schenectady’s revitalization.”

In addition to its wellness facilities, the YMCA offers childcare and after-school programming at over 30 locations around the region. 

“We welcome the Capital District to rediscover the CDYMCA,” said CDYMCA Chief Operating Officer Karen Hennet. “From wellness programs to group exercise to childcare, there is something for everyone at the Y.”
