YMCA Barrie

The Barrie YMCA is part of a 9-acre development on the shore of Kempenfelt Bay, just south of the city’s downtown core. SAI in association with McKnight Charron Laurin Inc., master planned the 9-acre site which includes the YMCA recreation facility, a GO Transit station, the Barrie Transit Terminal, Allandale Village, an outdoor skating rink, a 100,000 sf mixed-use development, and the restored heritage Allandale main station and railway museum.

The 70,000 sf YMCA recreation facility contains a gymnasium, swimming pools, a fitness centre, activity rooms, a child-minding centre, and an employment opportunity centre.
