The Kelowna Downtown YMCA is situated on the corner of Ellis and Doyle on the main floor of the new Interior Health building, the Kelowna Community Health and Services Centre.

Parking on the street is free after 5 p.m. and all day on Sundays and statutory holidays for 3,050 parking stalls. There are also 30 parking lots and 2 parkades in downtown area where parking is free after 6 p.m., all day on weekends and statutory holidays (except during Special Events).

We are able to offer full reciprocity between the Kelowna Family YMCA and the Downtown YMCA. All members of these facilities will be able to access the other facility at any time. 

Kelowna Downtown YMCA members will receive 25% off at the H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre drop-in fee. H2O is owned by the City of Kelowna and only operated by the YMCA of Okanagan so, due to our current operating agreement, we cannot offer full reciprocity at this time.

If you have a membership with the Downtown Y, you will have the opportunity to purchase a membership for your child at the Kelowna Family YMCA or H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre at the lower rate; giving them access to swim lessons and other programs.

The YMCA of Okanagan is excited to have expanded and opened its third health and fitness centre! This centre supports the health and wellness of residents and employees in the underserved downtown area and neighboring communities, offering state-of-the-art cardio and strength training amenities in the downtown core.

Locating the YMCA within Interior Health’s Community Health and Services Centre will offer clients health and fitness resources to assist in their transition out of the health care system. The YMCA’s unique, evidence-based approach builds the self-management skills and ongoing support systems necessary for people to continue along their health journey in a positive direction. Being based in the IHA building helps us to reach people who are accessing their services with the hopes for an easier transition to community programs.

No, the Kelowna Downtown YMCA is open to everyone! As a cause-driven charity with a mission dedicated to building healthy individuals and communities, the YMCA provides a wide range of programs and services with a focus on inclusiveness and accessibility, serving people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities through all stages of life. From cardiac rehabilitation to triathletes to those looking to get started, everyone is welcome.

The Kelowna Downtown YMCA is a 7,500 sq. ft. fitness centre and offers exciting amenities to the downtown core including a full suite of cardio and strength equipment, functional fitness areas, an 800 sq. ft. group fitness studio, a small dedicated cycle studio, and a multi-purpose room for meetings and educational health programming.

We offer a variety of group fitness programs offered including cycle, strength, bootcamp and yoga.  See the group fitness schedule for days and times.

Our goal is to be able to offer all of the same specialty health programs that we currently offer at the H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre and the Kelowna Family YMCA: Healthy Hearts, Healthy Hips and Knees and Breathe Well.  As we build our membership and further develop community relationships, we may offer additional specialty health programs in the future.
