J. Douglas Williams YMCA

Welcome to the J. Douglas Williams YMCA

We’re committed to improving the lives of all of our members throughout Seminole County and Central Florida!

Our family center is located on Longwood Lake Mary Road, between Soldier Creek and Lake Jenna. In 2019, we underwent a $1 million renovation to continue proudly serving more than 15,000 Lake Mary residents through programs that are truly impactful. As a leading nonprofit, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone has a place to learn, grow, and thrive.

Let’s stay healthy together! Learn more about our commitment to cleanliness in our facility.

We really enjoy this YMCA. The staff is great and they have awesome programs. The facilities are clean and well maintained. We also use the [Child Development Center] regularly and the staff is beyond helpful with getting our young children settled in.
