LAKE HIGHLANDS FAMILY YMCA FACILITY RENOVATIONS
The Lake Highlands Family YMCA expansion and renovation project has been operating smoothly this last year and we can’t wait for you to see the difference. We appreciate the patience of our members, community and staff as we tackle these changes to provide you with an improved experience. The branch will remain open during this project with all three phases expected to be complete by the end of 2023.
Here is our current timeline:
PHASE I - COMPLETED!
Phase I included the expansion of our west parking lot that increased parking capacity by 68%, and now provides 205 spaces. In addition, landscaping of the parking lot area, including new trees and grass were added as part of the improvement.
PHASE II - CURRENTLY UNDERWAY
Phase II includes the expansion of 15,000 square feet to house a new entry, lobby, fitness center, two group exercise rooms, a multipurpose room, and renovations to create 14 bathrooms, with 10 of them serving as changing rooms complete with showers and vanities.
The locker rooms will be available to use in early September. In the meantime, members can use the converted, private office space near the fitness floor to change and the on-deck portable shower for rinse-off (no soap and shampoo use).
The lobby entrance is slated to be completed by the end of September.
Phase III will include a new Childwatch room, a dedicated cycle studio, a refreshed basketball gym, and a new office suite. In October, the gym floor will be sanded and will receive new court lines, including 3 pickleball courts.

The Lake Highlands Family Y expansion is part of a multi-year, strategic growth strategy of the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas. Its Board of Directors and leadership approved a comprehensive plan to renovate existing YMCA locations, partner with new communities, and reimagine programs to better serve the needs of the growing North Texas community.
