NEW East Branch

A Vision for the Future

Building our Community.

Building our Future.

We will soon break ground on the new 59,700 square foot YMCA EAST facility at 1520 Cannonball Rd in Bristol, IL.  Over the course of ten years, our Board of Directors authorized the purchase 26 acres of land in anticipation of Kendall County growth and increased demand for programs, services and facility space.  This state-of-the-art YMCA promises area residents of all ages enhanced opportunities to engage with fitness, recreation, and community enrichment.

Join us as we embark on this exciting new chapter in community health and well-being. Together, we can build a healthier, happier future for our community.
