About

Welcome to our Stephens Family YMCA, which is among the best Y's in America!

We believe we have a place that the whole family can use and the entire community can be proud of.

We appreciate your continued support and look forward to serving your needs.

How do people with walkers or wheelchairs use the water slide?

You may notice that we have an elevator with front and rear doors. There is nothing special about it–it’s just a regular service elevator. What makes it special, though, is that it provides equal access to our water slide. While this may seem like a very practical solution, you will likely be surprised to learn that (to our knowledge) this is the only full-access water slide in the entire United States.
