Latest Operational Updates

May 2023

Dear Blanchard Park Y Family,

Earlier this year, we shared the update with you that the Blanchard Park Y needed to remain closed for the foreseeable future due to the severity of the damage to the facility caused by Hurricane Ian. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding over the past several months as the Y continues to work diligently to determine the best path forward for this facility in partnership with Orange County. At this time, no conclusions or determinations have been made regarding the feasibility or timing of when the facility might reopen given the extent of needed repairs.

We know the Y is more than a building-it is community and it is family. So, as we continue to explore ways to restore this home for you and our Blanchard Park neighbors, we want to encourage you on your wellness journey by taking advantage of your Y membership to visit any other nearby Y location along with your friends and loved ones. For a list of locations, please visit our website here.

We are also celebrating summer with a wide variety of fun and safe activities to keep kids engaged and learning, as well as planning to offer fall soccer once again at the Blanchard Park fields with registration starting June 23. You can learn more about our Y programs in the area, including youth sports, swim lessons, and summer camp, on our website program page.

We will plan to periodically provide you with facility updates in the future on the Blanchard Park Y via email, social media, and our location website page. If you have any questions in the meantime, please email me at the address below.

Thank you for being a part of our Y family.

In service,
Debbie Metzger
