Central Park Pool Collaboration

Collaboration means “to work jointly with others or together…”

At the Y we are committed to building partnerships and collaborating with others in an effort to build a stronger community. I’m happy to share with you about a new partnership that the Y has established with the Peoria Area Water Wizards (PAWW), who operate out of Central Park Pool on Richmond Avenue in Peoria.

Our partnership includes access privileges for members of each organization to the other’s facility. During the summer months, PAWW Swim Team participants will hold practices on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 5:30-7am at the YMCA pool. In addition their Master Swimmers will have access to the YMCA pool for open lap swimming.

Beginning September 4th and running through May 24, 2019, all YMCA members will have access to Central Park Pool for lap swimming privileges as follows:

  • Monday-Friday from 5-8:00am
  • Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11:30am-1:30pm
  • Saturdays from 7-8:30am
  • Sundays from 12-2pm

I’m happy to share that there will be no additional fees assessed for this access to either organization, meaning this is included with your regular membership dues. In August, we will provide additional information to our members about access to the Central Park Pool.

I’m thankful for the leadership of the PAWW organization, to work with us to develop this partnership, and I hope you will join me in welcoming them to the Y. We are hopeful that this is the beginning of a strong relationship between the Y and PAWW to support and enhance the swimming community in the Peoria area and beyond.
