Facility Updates & Weather-Related Changes

Due to staffing issues, the Y's drop-in child care will not be available Monday & Tuesday morning, January 17th & 18th. There will be child care available evening hours as normal.

The Rec Pool is open and will have Open Swim on Sunday from 1-5 p.m.

The Spa & Men's Steam Room are now open.

Open Swim in the Rec Pool will be available ONLY on Sundays until further notice.

The Marshalltown Y is experiencing a lifeguard shortage, resulting in a lack of staff available for Open Swim. We are working to resolve this issue as soon as possible. In the meantime, there will be no Open Swim available Monday - Saturday, and no Water Volleyball on Tuesday evening.  

Please note: The Lap Pool schedule remains unchanged and is still available for Lap Swim.  Changes in Open Swim affect only the Rec Pool.
