Building Dreams in Wheatlands

The Wheatlands Park and Recreation Authority in partnership with the YMCA, is creating a wonderful new recreation center in southeast Aurora. The Wheatlands Park and Recreation Authority is a separate legal entity created to construct, manage and maintain the new recreation center being built in the Wheatlands neighborhood. The recreation center will feature 2 fitness studios, a cycle studio, pilates studio, a 6 lane pool, child-watch, community kitchen, weight room and cardio equipment. The Recreation Center is scheduled to open in 2021.

The Wheatlands YMCA is coming to Wheatlands in May 2021.  The YMCA is excited to join your community as a place of strength, connection and health.

The YMCA is open to the public and we will start enrolling members soon. Please visit our new Aurora Family YMCA Website below for enrollment:


We are thrilled to bring our new YMCA to the Wheatlands community.
