The Y is more than a gym. We’re the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening our community, and we're excited to expand into Fenton.

The Gateway Region YMCA is excited to share the GREAT NEWS that the Fenton RiverChase Rec Center is becoming the "RiverChase YMCA," effective July 1, 2022. The City of Fenton approved transferring operations of the facility to the Gateway Region YMCA at the Board of Alderman meeting on April 28, 2022.
