Aquatics Updates

New York City's YMCAs have taught people how to swim for over 150 years, and we strive to provide individuals the opportunity to enter the water in a safe and fun environment.

The West Side YMCA is home to two pools located on the second floor. The Large Pool is a 75' x 25' lap pool with four lanes and a temperature range of 79-81 degrees. The Small Pool is a 60' x 20' recreational pool with a temperature range of 88-90 degrees. Bring your swim cap and come for a swim with us!
