Visit the YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo at the Maple Branch, located at 1001 W. Maple St., Kalamazoo. 

There are two entries at the Maple Site. The Maple Street access is reserved for Early Learning pre-school program students and their families. This entrance is locked at all times. All others are required to use the south side entrance off of Hudson Street. All staff and members are required to scan in for access to the building. Guests and vendors must sign in when visiting beyond the Welcome Center. 


Y members and guests have access to two parking lots; one adjacent to our building accessible via Hudson Street which offers several handicapped-accessible spots. This lot is typically full during peak hours. Overflow parking is available also off of Hudson Street (on the east side). This lot is shared with Kalamazoo Free Methodist Church with no restrictions except on Sundays; please notice posted signage that directs parkers to park on the southern end of the lot. 

Street parking is also available.
