The new Champaign, IL YMCA is a state of the art facility with 7,648 sq ft of family and therapy pools with tile gutter overflow, diamond brite plaster finishes and a high rate sand filter system. Play features include a slide and floatables which the CEO says has made the YMCA “a huge success in our community.”
The facility has three indoor bodies of water. The largest is an 8-lane competition/lap pool. There is also a leisure pool with a zero entry, a water slide, and two lap lanes, which provide a playful element for the younger swimmers. A special therapy pool was also designed with an underwater bench and access ramp. This unique pool is specially maintained at 90 degrees to give rehabilitation patients the best chance for healing and recovery.
