The Walton YMCA will sit on 38 acres of land directly across the street from Monroe Area High School. It will be about 36,000 square feet and will have an 8-lane indoor pool, as well as a separate warm water therapy pool. The new Y also will have a wellness center, aerobics room, afterschool/summer camp rooms, a nursery and a meeting room/chapel. Outdoors, the Walton Y plans to have soccer fields and an archery range.
