Parking options for the YMCA at the Athenaeum

Your parking experience at the YMCA at the Athenaeum is important to us and we want to make you aware of temporary changes to our parking. Starting Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020 the parking lot on the east side of the YMCA at the Athenaeum will be closed for approximately 18 months for the construction of an exciting new development project. The current surface lot owned by the Athenaeum Foundation is closed for the construction. When finished, the YMCA will have designated parking in the new garage.

Alternative parking options for YMCA members

During construction, free three-hour parking will be available to YMCA while using the YMCA at the Athenaeum facility. This parking option is located in the Old National Centre North lot directly behind the English Foundation building just two blocks away. A specialty YMCA parking tag will be needed before parking in this lot and can be collected at the member services desk of the YMCA at the Athenaeum.

Important Updates

During the week of August 17-21, the parking gates to the Irsay Family YMCA will be offline while new gates are installed. Members can still parking in the lot during this time.

Once this upgrade is completed, members of the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis will be required to have their YMCA membership card in order utilize the Irsay Family YMCA parking lot. Validation tickets will no longer be given out. A membership card will be required for free parking.

How to use the Irsay Family Y parking lot: 
  1. Scan your YMCA of Greater Indianapolis membership card at the parking lot entrance gate.
  2. Scan your membership card at the hospitality desk inside the Irsay Family YMCA.
  3. Scan your membership card at the parking lot exit gate. Failure to complete with step will result in parking charges.

The YMCA parking lot is meant for Y members while using the Irsay Family YMCA. This new process will allow us to better protect the integrity of the parking lot and allow for only those actively using the YMCA to park in the lot rather than using parking spots for other activities and events downtown.

We ask all members to make sure they have an active YMCA membership card. For ease of use, we recommend adding your YMCA membership card to the YMCA WTN app for Apple or Android, MINDBODY app for Apple or Android or another keycard app on your smartphone. If you need a replacement card, please visit the member services desk: Monday -Friday from 8 AM – 8 PM, Saturday from 8 AM – 4 PM or Sunday from Noon – 4 PM with a valid photo ID to obtain a replacement card.
