South Orlando YMCA

Welcome to the South Orlando YMCA

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

Our family center is located between Padgett Park and Vogt-Meloon Park, just off West Oak Ridge Road. We’re a vital part of our community and thanks to the generosity of our partners—including Lockheed Martin, Darden, and Microsoft—we’re able to provide a variety of high-quality programs. Children and teens can play sports and enjoy After School Care, adults can join a pick-up league, and seniors can participate in Silver Sneakers. 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.

This is a great family-oriented gym where you can feel comfortable working out in. I love the classes and my 6-year-old loves the Child Development Center.

Dee M.

The staff is very kind and friendly. I feel very comfortable with working out/swimming. It’s family-oriented and understands the need for self-improvement and so the Y provides childcare while you work out. My little girls are currently taking swimming lessons and the instructor is patient, kind, and professional.

Schakera C.

Very professional and personal. Staff is courteous and outgoing. You get a great sense of family!
