Kipling Avenue YMCA
Since 2006, the YMCA has been in discussions with the City of Toronto regarding the development of a YMCA Centre of Community at the corner of Dundas Street West and Kipling Avenue in central Etobicoke.
The proposed 60,000 sq ft YMCA Centre of Community would provide supportive programming and services to more than 8,100 people and help the community get healthy and active.
The facility will have “green design features” where appropriate, and could include pool(s), gym, youth games room, children’s activity zone, multi-purpose meeting rooms, child-minding, fitness studios.
