Greenwood wants to partner with nonprofit on pool

If a YMCA is built in the county, Greenwood would like it to be next to a new aquatic center at Freedom Park.

Greenwood has been in talks with the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis about partnering on a $10 million aquatic center at Freedom Park and building a YMCA facility next door, which would include an indoor pool, gym and space for classes, Mayor Mark Myers said.

The YMCA is interested in managing the new city-owned pool and would pay for operating expenses, including lifeguard salaries, Myers said. The city and the nonprofit still must work out the details, such as whether the YMCA would collect all the revenue or be paid a management fee.
