AP Breaks Ground on the Aurora Family YMCA at Wheatlands


Aurora, CO., November 25, 2019 – On a chilly afternoon on an empty lot, Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) – along with YMCA of Metropolitan Denver, the Wheatlands Park and Rec Authority, Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture (BRS), donors and community members – broke ground on the new Aurora Family YMCA at Wheatlands.

This 40,000-sf facility, designed by BRS, will directly support individuals and families with new and expanded Y programs for healthy living, aquatics safety, childcare, education and teen leadership. It will feature a wellness studio, aerobics studio, cycling studio, party and community room, competition pool and teen area.

“This afternoon we break ground on the Aurora Family YMCA at Wheatlands and we celebrate the vision, advocacy and commitment of everyone here and behind the scenes,” said Kimberly Armitage, VP of Strategic Growth and Membership for YMCA Metropolitan Denver. “This project was possible with two metro districts, one designated recreation authority and a nonprofit to come together for the good of the community. And, it shows how this unique partnership – one that has never happened in the state of Colorado – can venture outside the box and deliver a resource that is both positive and transformative.”

The Y will be a resource for all surrounding residents and will seek to help low-income and minority families to bolster health outcomes, reduce drop-out rates, improve academic success, and promote child safety.
