Bardmoor YMCA scheduled to open in new location Monday


The Bardmoor Branch of the YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg is moving. But it's not going far.

It's moving next door, to the east of its location in the Morton Plant Mease Bardmoor Outpatient Center, 8787 Bryan Dairy Road, where it has been for about 14 years.

The new structure, which opens Monday, is on 5 acres of the Bardmoor Palms II Business Complex near Bryan Dairy and Starkey roads.

The new facility, which cost about $7.4 million including the land, has 36,000 square feet, about 2½ times the size of the current Bardmoor YMCA. Officials expect to serve 14,000 people with programs that range from a Preschool Academy to basketball and volleyball teams for kids, teens and adults.

Other programs include Les Mills aerobics, Silver Sneakers, yoga, tai chi, martial arts, kickboxing, Pilates, diabetes prevention and a Livestrong cancer support group.

The building has a fitness center, gym, child-care center, and a place to sit, chat and drink smoothies. Future plans include a swimming pool.

Hours will be from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call (727) 394-9622 or go to
