The Ferguson Family YMCA, formerly named the Downtown YMCA, is located at 235 N Jefferson Street and is the original Green Bay YMCA, built in 1925. This 112,000 square foot facility underwent an extensive renovation and revitalization, officially revealing the beautifully renovated building and new name on May 1st, 2017. Spaces were renovated using modern elements and glass to increase visual transparency within the building while complementing the existing wood and other elements, preserving this rich historic building of the Green Bay community. Behind the scenes, new ventilation systems and mechanical upgrades have been made for a better member experience.

At the Ferguson Family Y you’ll find an expanded 2 story Wellness Center with a great view, an area for stretching and functional training, and outfitted with a full replacement of all free weight equipment as well as the latest equipment in cardio! Also offered for all your fitness needs are two Group Exercise Studios, Mind & Body Studio, Training Center, Gymnasium, Indoor Track (24 laps/mile) and a regulation-sized racquetball court. Brand new locker rooms, including a new Family Locker Room, provide ample room with heated floors, lockers and private showers. The Ferguson Family Y offers three Pools, including 6 lane competition pool (where YMCA swim team meets are held), warm water pool and whirlpool. A brand new steam room and sauna is featured in the aquatic area accommodating both men and women. The facility also features a complete Gymnastics Center where programs for all ages are held and the Gymnastics Team (Green Bay Gymstars) practices are held. The new center has an improved layout, full-size spring floor and added equipment, as well as a dry locker room for female team members. You will also find brand new family-friendly areas including Kids Korner (drop-in child care center), Youth Activity Center (YAC), and our Family Adventure Center. Several lounge areas are offered around a beautifully naturally lit atrium, multi-purpose rooms that can be used for meetings and rentals, and ADA access at the front entrance.
