The YMCA is about halfway through construction on their new $20 Million, 48,000 square foot facility on Robinwood Lake, that will feature a boathouse, an open-air chapel, several waterside athletic fields, and 2 full-sized indoor pools.

The new boathouse will allow members to rent canoes, stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, as well as fishing boats with electric motors. Artificial reefs are being installed in the lake, that will be stocked with roughly 40,000 large-mouth bass and bream for fishing.

Two miles of trails are being built through the nearby woods, as well as a day camp village with the ability to camp in tents and secluded spots to meditate in peace.

The facility will also include a 2-story climbing wall and app-accessible cafe that will serve shakes, smoothies, juices, salads, wraps.

The new Robinwood Lake YMCA will replace 2 outdated facilities – the YMCA Central Branch on Franklin Blvd. and the South Gastonia YMCA on Union Rd.

Grand opening is now scheduled for November or December of this year.
