NORFOLK, Nebraska (KTIV) – The Norfolk Family YMCA recently expanded its facilities, and employees say it’s helping the physical and wellness of the community.
The $13.7 million expansion opened for business this spring.
The addition includes a whole new workout area, field house, and a large indoor track.
There is also a new section for kids that is geared towards giving them their own experience at the Y.
“If they’re 7 and younger they can go in our adventure zone,” said Doris Dederman, Norfolk Family YMCA. “It does have to be supervised by an adult or somebody 16 years or older. They can’t just drop them off there and go workout- that’s what we have our Child Watch for, they can bring them there while they work out.”
The idea for the addition evolved from a city study that was presented back in January 2014.
The Norfolk Family YMCA is located at 301 W. Benjamin Ave.
