It’s Fun To Reopen The YMCA




After being closed for nearly four years after Fort Monroe was deactivated as a U.S. Army installation in Sept. 2011, the Fort Monroe Authority has reached an agreement with the YMCA to reopen its fun-filled fitness center location on the former military base.

Apparently the residents and businesses of Fort Monroe and the surrounding areas agree with the Village People; a 2013 survey of folks in Fort Monroe, Phoebus and Buckroe indicated that there was significant interest in it.

The revival of the 34,020-square-foot facility, located at 8 Ruckman Rd., continues a history of 126 years of serving the community and is considered a significant indicator of the progress in Fort Monroe’s  redevelopment efforts.
