The Holcomb Family YMCA is inviting the community to its grand opening event Dec. 11 at 5201 Imperial Promenade Drive, Spring.

According to a news release from the YMCA of Greater Houston, the opening will celebrate the completion of the organization's first phase of development, which features a 12,000-square-foot pavilion with turf, a multipurpose court for games such as pickleball and basketball, and an outdoor workout space.

"We are excited for the expansion of services to the greater Spring community with this location," District Executive Director Chris Butsch said in the release. "The YMCA of Greater Houston was founded 135 years ago as a place where all people could find hope, fellowship and healing. By bringing together people from different backgrounds, perspectives and generations, we ensure that all have access to the opportunities, relationships and resources necessary to learn, grow and thrive. This Holcomb Family YMCA will be dedicated to this purpose and hopes to bring value to the Falls at Imperial Oaks residents and surrounding communities.”

The expansion of YMCA services to the Spring community was the result of a donation of the 10.2 acres of land valued at over $3 million by developers Jim Holcomb, Dick Weekley and David Weekley. In addition to the land, the Holcomb and Weekley families donated $3 million toward the construction of Phase 1 of the project.

The YMCA must raise additional funds to support future buildings for the project and is in the preliminary stages of a capital campaign.


Construction on the project began in April. 713-659-5566. www.ymcahouston.org
