WHY WE’RE HERE This beautiful 69,000 square foot facility is made possible through a public/private partnership between the Y and the City of Sammamish. Built in Sammamish’s Town Center on 9 acres of City owned land, the Community & Aquatic Center is bringing our community together and will continue to create a lasting impact for years to come. With a 50-year lease as sole operator, the Y will greatly expand its positive impact in Sammamish and Eastside communities.

The YMCA of Greater Seattle is the Northwest’s leading nonprofit organization strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Founded in 1876, we enhance lives of more than 220,000 people annually through 13 branches, two overnight camps and more than 200 program sites throughout King and south Snohomish counties.

We live our mission daily, one person and relationship at a time:

• Reaching 220,069 people of all backgrounds, abilities and financial circumstances. • Nurturing 79,187 children and teens to develop their gifts and give back to our community. • Engaging 15,007 volunteers who contribute 325,988 hours of service each year. • Working with 15,071 community donors, investing $8.7 million in local kids and families.
