Those with a metro membership at area YMCA’s will now have a new location for workouts.
The Steiner Branch Family Y, a 16,500- square-foot facility located inside the Columbia County Exhibition Hall at the Gateway complex in Grovetown, will have its grand opening Saturday, May 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“The design is going to be similar to the Marshall Family Y,” said April King, community relations coordinator of The Family Y of Greater Augusta. “It has a large, state-of-the-art wellness center, group exercise rooms, program space, locker rooms and multiple child-care rooms.”
For the opening, joining fees will be waived for new memberships at all Family Ys from May 10-12.
The Steiner Branch, located at 218 Partnership Drive down the hill from the Grovetown Walmart, will be open Monday through Thursday, 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
The Steiner branch is already looking ahead to an expansion.
“There are fundraising plans in the works to build a youth sports field and a water park that could open as early as summer 2014,” King said.
