Visit the YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo at the Portage location! 

For members and guests, there is one entrance, located off of the main parking lot. All staff and members must scan in. Vendors and guests wishing to visit beyond the Welcome Center must sign in. 


This building is located between the main building and the tennis courts, used in summer for the Y's day camp experience and various group exercise classes during the off camp season. 


Parking is available in the main lot with several handicapped spots. The parking lot extends around toward the Tennis courts. During certain peak times, the main lot fills quickly; Group Exercise class participants are reminded to allow for extra time for a smooth parking experience.
