Located in Central Queens, the Jamaica YMCA offer state-of-the-art exercise equipment, a pool, programs for kids and families, and a community committed to helping you reach your goals.
Formerly known as the Central Queens YMCA, the Jamaica YMCA opened in 1928 on Parsons Boulevard. The black population of Queens had grown to more than 10,000 people, many of whom were settling in Jamaica, and this YMCA soon welcomed them as members.
The Jamaica YMCA is rich in history and culture. The facility has been housed in the same building for over 90 years and was originally used as a center for boys. Its expansive maze of rooms have been converted to meet the needs of the changing community, by providing member and non-members alike with a multitude of classes, programs, and services including guest rooms.
