I've only been a member for a week, but my experience so far feels like the life change I've been so badly desiring. The facility is great, but the staff (i.e., LaRoy- front desk, and Bob- swim instructor) and the members make me feel so welcome and part of this community. I can't say enough about my experience so far.

Clean Y with modern, well-maintained facilities. Excellent service at the front desk from Shakeema, who connected me with a guest pass while I was in town. Made good use of weight room, basketball court and sauna.

The Durham Downtown Y is a wonderful place. The clientele is all different kinds of folks, different shades, different economic conditions etc. The Y serves everyone. It is the world like I would want it to be. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Yes, the building is worn but I love it for who is there and the inclusive, friendly atmosphere. And, they are building a new bigger, better building on the same spot starting in Dec 2022 or Jan 2023.

Is there a law of quantum physics that the steam and sauna cannot work at the same time as the steam and sauna at the Lakewood Y? The steam at Lakewood is down, and then, so as the sauna at the Downtown Y?

I’m so grateful to all the staff for their commitment throughout these last couple of years. The community has been the hardest thing to maintain and what has kept me and so many of my friends connected. Everyone has been so helpful, kind and real. Thank you!
