Parking is, at times, congested at the Fercho YMCA. Due to this issue we have agreements with several neighboring parking lots to help members find a place to park:

  • 1st Ave S: Free two-hour and four-hour parking spaces are available on the street north of the YMCA from 8:00am – 5:00pm Monday – Friday. Unlimited street parking is available after 5:00pm and on the weekends.
  • Island Park Ramp: The lower level of the ramp on 1st Ave S may be utilized free of charge after 5:00pm on Monday – Friday, and all day Saturday and Sunday.
  • Professional Building Parking Lot: This lot on 4th St S may be utilized after 5:00pm free of charge.
  • Wells Fargo Lot: This lot on 1st Ave S may be utilized after 5:00pm free of charge.

A big THANK YOU to members who save parking spots close to the doors for seniors and members with small children. You truly showcase the YMCA’s values of respect and caring, and you get a few extra steps in each day!
