SARATOGA SPRINGS — Earlier this summer, on June 21, the Saratoga Regional YMCA on West Avenue broke ground on a new 38,000 square foot expansion. This ongoing project is a joint collaboration between the YMCA and the Saratoga Senior Center. The expansion, which will include costs north of $8 million dollars, will be fully equipped with a 14,500 square foot addition that the Saratoga Senior Center will call home.

The Saratoga Regional YMCA has been dedicated to improving the health and wellness of the greater Saratoga community for over 150 years. The new expansion building will supply additional space for the popular YMCA and will come fully equipped new fitness spaces and wellness centers devoted to public health - something the Dake Foundation and Stewart’s Shops have been consistent with in their givings for decades.  An indoor “adventure center” which will include a play space, a new gymnasium, as well as a shared lobby area between the Y and the Senior Center are also parts of the plan. 

“Saratoga is nationally recognized for its dedication to healthy living, and this project is not only a natural extension of that, but is taking a revolutionary approach to the many benefits of intergenerational wellness,” said Saratoga Regional YMCA CEO Scott Clark. “At a time when social interaction and healthy bodies are more important than ever, we are so thrilled to be able to create this special space for our community. We are so grateful to all of our benefactors who are helping to make it a reality.”
