Construction Updates

Welcome to the Park Cities YMCA Construction Update page. All updates concerning the construction of the new Moody Family YMCA in the Park Cities will be posted here. If you would like to opt into the Update Emails please send your contact information to Roger Moon at

Currently the Park Cities YMCA is located in an interim location in Preston Center next to Hopdoddys.  We will remain in the interim space throughout the construction period.

After 63 years, the YMCA is building a new Y in the Park Cities to better serve the community. The facility will be located on the site of the current YMCA at 6000 Preston Road.  The facility will include a 281 space underground parking facility, gymnasium, indoor pool along with a family and therapy pool, wellness center, multi- purpose space for youth programs, a preschool center and outdoor recreation fields.

Slated to open in the fall of 2016, the new Moody Family YMCA will be a vibrant Y that can serve the needs of kids, teens , families and seniors in the Park Cities for generations to come.

How will the construction impact traffic?

Trucks will be limited to Preston Road and Normandy, with the exception being along Connerly when the demolition, site utilities, and concrete pavement repair is taking place.  These activities will be done throughout various phases of the project and thus will impact traffic accordingly.  When possible we will post notices in advance of the work taking place.   


Will there be lane closures?

During underground utility work there will be various partial lane closures along Connerly and Normandy.  Flagman will be used as needed to direct traffic around the work. Potential single lane closures on Preston Road during demolition of the existing paving and potentially for final garage concrete work

How will the new YMCA be Landscaped?
