As community members enter the Y in the Park for the first time they are amazed at just how fantastic the project has turned out. Some remember going to the building to shoot archery for high school or to gather the Christmas ornaments for Main Street. Many find it hard to believe that this old and often forgotten building could be brought back to life and once again touch the lives of those in our community. At the start of the project it was hard for many people to envision what the YMCA staff, volunteers and donors had in mind for this historic building. But now they are excited about the potential of this old building, and how it once again is filled with laughter and excitement. With a steadfast approach and several surprises along the way, the YMCA has saved this nearly 100 year old building and ensured that it will be part of Johnson County for another 100 years. It is exciting to know that today’s youth will have fond memories of playing, learning, building friendships, and discovering who they are at the Y in the Park. We are thankful for those that had faith and trusted the YMCA in this endeavor as we worked together to strengthen our community. We are honored to serve our community every day, and are excited to enhance that service with this wonderful facility.
