The Northwest YMCA Branch opened in 2013 in an effort to expand its reach for the community. The Y made a commitment to create a better community that will nurture the potential of youth, improve health and well-being, and support our neighbors. The Y is the nation's leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

The Northwest YMCA Branch is located near West Vernal Pike serving Ellettsville and the North side of Bloomington. It is set on a beautiful wooded site that includes trails connecting to the Karst trail. The state-of-the-art facility includes an indoor heated multifunctional pool, wellness center, child watch, gymnasium, and an onsite IU Health Foot and Ankle office.
