For 50 years, the Green Hills Family YMCA has served as a community hub that today helps more than 25,000 people a year grow in spirit, mind and body.

Now, our Y wants to ensure that the next 50 years are as impactful as the last with a multimillion-dollar renovation designed to transform the Green Hills Y into a thoughtfully designed, fully accessible and modern facility that can better support the growing needs of the entire community.  

 RENOVATION highlights

Nurturing Health

The Green Hills Y’s wellness will receive a fresh, updated look, new group exercise spaces, and new functional space providing an all-in-one experience for more members of our community.

A Place for Teens

A completely reimagined Frist Teen and Family Center will feature movable walls, a commercial kitchen, and other improvements that allow the Y to provide high-quality programming including educational enrichment, an art lab, maker spaces/STEM classes, small groups, and so much more! 

Where Kids Can Be Kids

The Grant and Howorth Family Youth Adventure Center creates an unplugged environment where youth can climb, explore and connect in a creative and adventure-filled environment.

New Outdoor Experiences

A new, state-of-the-art outdoor fitness terrace—the first of its kind for the YMCA of Middle Tennessee—will provide a relaxed and refreshing natural setting for individual training as well as group classes.   

Accessible for All

Our new Universal Locker Rooms—featuring all-in-one private stalls, private changing rooms, open-air lockers and sinks—will offer members of all ages and diverse abilities the utmost in convenience, comfort and safety. Best of all, the new areas will feature direct access to all of the Y’s aquatic areas and pool deck.  

Increased Flow and Function

A core focus of the renovation is to maximize and reimagine existing square footage to expand programming and increase flow and function of the facility. A main arterial hallway connecting the front and back of the building alongside the gym will offer better access, flow and sight-lines to wellness spaces, workout studios, and the natatorium. Additionally, a new stairwell will be added that connects the first-floor and second-floor fitness areas and provides better access to the indoor track. 

Fostering Community

The Frist Community Wing is an exciting new space features a modern, functional design that serves members in a multitude of ways. It sports multiple meeting rooms, including two rooms that have the flexibility to be combined into one free-flowing space. For teens, there's a gaming/hangout area. The full kitchen allows for healthy cooking demonstrations and can serve as a lively meeting spot.
