Killeen Armed Services YMCA, TX
Built in conjunction with the development of a new city park, the new Armed Services YMCA serves a growing population of families and households, many with members in the military. The site was developed in partnership with the Harker Heights park district with shared parking areas for programming at the facility and activities in the community park. Amenities for the community park include several walking trails, 2 dog parks, an 18-hole disc golf course, and picnic pavilions. Programming at the YMCA will include services for military families such as physical therapy, counseling, and the accommodation of Olympic-style Paralympic sports and competition. Additionally, the Y is partners with a local hospital to offer outpatient physical therapy and rehab in the facility, which includes a warm-water therapy pool. Opened in June 2016, the facility includes an indoor family pool, warm-water therapy pool, multiple group exercise studios, a racquetball court, an inter-generational center, family adventure center, child watch/babysitting, and a large wellness center with areas for physical therapy and rehab.
