Great place to work out !!! And it is right beside Princess Island Park. Which has a wonderful river front park to stroll and lots of good eating places. Usually kids outside in the waiting pool, ice cream stands, great food and entertainment in the Eau Claire mall right outside the doors. The pathway system has many people on bikes... More

I have been to Eau Claire YMCA a few times and just can't get a good feeling. Being right on the river, with great access, it has no parking so right away, carrying a gym bag on the bus does not appeal to me. They do have locks you can use, which seemed like an awesome alternative to the $1... More

My brother used this remarkable facility during a winter stay ...particularly the swimming pool with assigned lanes. This pool has windows that let the outside in...beautiful to watch the snow falling outside while you are exercising. Room for "spectators"...as I was...to read, enjoy a snack or beverage or work on computer. Use your home membership as an introduction and relax... More

I recommend the Calgary Eau Claire YMCA. It has great equipment, lots of classes and many of them are open for drop in, a great pool, and indoor track, and a small food service restaurant for coffee and lunches. The staff are friendly and knowledgable and there are personal trainers for hire. The facility is kept clean. You can rent... More

The Gray Family Eau Claire YMCA has a wide variety of equipment and activities to suit everybody's needs. I particularly like the 25m pool. An assortment of free drop-in classes for members makes it ideal for me. And its location beside the Bow River makes it a great spot to change before a run.

The Eau Claire YMCA is on the Bow River and has friendly staff. Overall clean. The only drawback is the parking which is expensive during the daytime weekday hours. But its free in the early mornings and evenings after 5pm. I recommend getting a membership if you walk downtown or work there.

I had been a couple of times before to this YMCA, my hotel is about 2 miles from it. Also today I was there around 5.30, when they open up. First in line to pay, I was told to wait. When I finally could pay, I had to show my ID , which I did not have with me, and... More
