New Lockport YMCA to open Oct. 1; old site for sale

The new Lockport Family YMCA at 5833 Snyder Drive in the Town of Lockport will open at 5 a.m. Oct. 1, said Geoffrey Falkner, communications director of YMCA Buffalo Niagara.

The old Lockport YMCA on East Avenue in the City of Lockport will close for good at 5 p.m. Sept. 26, Falkner said, and the 92-year-old building is up for sale.

A community open house at the new facility will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 29 and 30.

Ground was broken in July 2017 for the $17 million project, begun after more than a decade of fundraising. The 52,000-square-foot building will boast a new gymnasium and swimming pool, a steam room, two exercise studios and a children's "adventure center."
