Greenwich YMCA Holds Sneak Peek of Y Play, Lego Room During Holiday Stroll Weekend

The Greenwich YMCA is getting ready to unveil their new youth program space, “Y PLAY,” just in time for the Holiday Stroll Weekend.

On December 2 and 3 from 10:00am – 2:00pm, families with children age 3-10, are welcomed to participate in festive activities like Holiday Lego Builds, Candy Cane Crush and a “North Pole” Toddler Run.

All the fun takes place in the new 3,000 square foot space, outfitted with a tumble room, LEGO room, music room and art room.

“Our goal was to design a program space that supported free play and a child’s creative mind,” said Heather Brown, Director of Programs. “Our children are on an academic fast track today and there is so much to learn
from free, exploratory play.”

New Y Play Winter season programs include LEGO group builds, children’s yoga, cooking classes, puppet workshops, and Imagination Playground’s big blue blocks.

A monthly calendar of open programs, classes, special events and workshops is available for members and non-members. To sign up for notifications and alerts, visit
