YMCA facility in Baton Rouge is closing after 20-plus years


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A YMCA facility that has been around since 1999 is closing up shop in the near future.

A representative for YMCABR says, “we will not be able to fully reopen the Southside YMCA.”

At this time, the facility is open and offering group exercise classes.

At some point, those group exercise classes will be moved to YMCA locations.

After that is done, the Southside YMCA will permanently close its doors.

YMCABR says there is no “timeline for when this transition will take place.”
