The Northfield Y honors and celebrates those generous community members who have allowed us to build the new Y facility. In keeping with our pledge to the community to ensure a fiscally responsible, sustainable organization, we have built only what we can afford and what the community supports financially.

Northfield’s Y opened on September 3, 2014. The Y community center features an indoor aquatics center, group fitness studio, cardio and wellness floor, full size gym, indoor walking track, supervised children’s center, locker rooms (including those for family and special needs), offices and a multi-purpose community gathering space. The full project cost is $9.3M which includes land, construction and start-up expenses. Construction on Phase I began in November 2013, and in March 2014, fundraising milestones were reached to begin Phase II, which includes the gym and walking track.
Since 2005, the Northfield Y has served thousands of youth, families and individuals in the community through its full slate of annual programming, camps, and fitness offerings utilizing numerous locations all around town. To prepare for a successful capital campaign, feasibility studies have been conducted, pro-formas have been carefully evaluated, volunteers and staff have been recruited, monies have been raised and national best practices have been followed.
Interested in learning more about the project? The Y’s executive director, staff and volunteers are participating in a wide variety of community events (gatherings, presentations, open houses) to share the project, answer questions, involve more people, and simply give everyone time to ask questions and view the plans. If your group would like further information, let us know! We look forward to you joining us.
