  1. Hi. I called lifetime and they stated it’s not free for the first time at this location unfortunately.

    • We just checked the YMCA website and it appears that the Memorial Park YMCA is still undergoing renovations. 🙁

  2. Does anyone know why they post lifeguards at the splash pads? They can be a bit overbearing sometimes 😬
