ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Exciting news for folks in Canandaigua, who celebrated the grand opening of their newest YMCA branch Monday.
The location is 75,000 square feet and features two pools, a turf gym and a splash pad.
Leaders say this facility will allow the YMCA to serve more people, aiming to embrace neighboring villages and towns — not just Canandaigua. A highlight of this new YMCA is the emphasis on family, offering activities like family fitness classes, a teaching kitchen and after-school programs.
A $13 million donation came from the Sands Family Foundation towards the project. The location is named after them.
