North Royalton Family YMCA

North Royalton, Ohio

North Royalton residents have a new workout option, courtesy of a unique public-private collaboration. The North Royalton YMCA, at 11409 State Road, opened in 2012 and occupies the former Avalon Event Center. A partnership between Brandstetter Carroll Inc., the City of North Royalton, Parma Community General Hospital and the YMCA of Greater Cleveland brought this project to fruition. The former event center was converted to a community focused recreation center and includes a physical therapy center for Parma Hospital.

The 50,800 s.f. building includes a new 8,200 s.f. aquatics center with an eight-lane, 25 yard competitive swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna, locker rooms, four family changing rooms, elevated indoor track, 4,500 s.f. fitness center and 1,700 s.f. weight room. Also in the mix: a group exercise studio, cycling room, 6,000 s.f. gym and outdoor playground.

This project was profiled in “Properties: Northeast Ohio’s Monthly Realty, Construction & Architecture Magazine.”
