New YMCA Opens in Lincoln

By  | 

Lincoln has a new YMCA, and it's one of a kind across the country.

The Fallbrook YMCA opened Sunday. It's attached to Schoo Middle School, which its director says it so unique he knows of none like it in the Midwest, but predicts there will be more in the future.

"I do think the model is going to be reproduced a lot because of the advantages we get. Typically a down time for YMCA might be late morning to early afternoon and a peak time would be early mornings and evenings. So, the benefits of sharing time with the school is that it is kind of the opposite of busy times of school," said Fallbrook YMCA Director J.P. Lauterbach.

The YMCA has two pools, three gyms, family programming and a child care center.
