Project: Copple Family YMCA

Lincoln, Nebraska

Named after longtime supporter Ed Copple, the newly constructed Copple Family YMCA elevated the community of Southeast Lincoln. Connected to the new Marilyn Moore Middle School, the YMCA aquatic center features an indoor/outdoor pool, an indoor spa, and an outdoor spray pad to meet the needs of exercise enthusiasts and students at the new middle school. The indoor pool consists of five 75-ft lap lanes, a leisure swimming area, a current channel, and a water slide. The outdoor pool was designed as a more leisurely swim area, featuring a water slide and splash pad with 14 interactive spray features.

In addition to the aquatics center, the YMCA features child care and preschool functions, four gyms, an open strength and cardio area, and three studios for fitness classes.
