Tandy Family YMCA Expansion
The YMCA of Greater Tulsa knows that lasting personal and social change comes about when everyone works together. That’s why strengthening community is their cause. Every day, they work side-by-side with their neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
The Tandy Family YMCA, the newest facility in the Y’s family, is a transformation of an aging, 50-year-old facility. The existing 50,000 square foot facility was completely renovation and a 48,000 square foot addition added much-needed room to grow. The new space houses a fitness area, locker rooms, and outdoor splash pad and three pools – a family pool, a dedicated lap pool and therapy pool. The renovated portion houses a nutrition kitchen, multipurpose rooms, office space and child watch area. The existing fitness area will remain and connect to the new fitness area, doubling the current capacity. The Tandy Y also includes space dedicated to a partnership between the Y, the University of Oklahoma Physicians Sports Medicine and OU Physical Therapy in an effort to prevent chronic conditions that are prevalent in the community.
