The Cowart Family/Ashford Dunwoody YMCA will celebrate a renovation of its wellness areas on Jan. 15 from 5 to 8 p.m. The event will include tours, entertainment and refreshments along with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. All residents are invited to attend.

A new and expanded wellness center was added to the facility, located at 3692 Ashford Dunwoody Road in addition to two new group exercise studios, family dressing areas, a new lobby and entrance, and an elevator. The improvements are part of a $4.8 million renovation that began in March last year.

“We are thrilled with the investment in this Y,” says Amie McDougal, wellness director, in a press release. “It is a benefit for members to have this expanded center paired with the support of our wellness coaches.”

Still to come in the next phase of renovations will be a new play center for children while parents work out and a teen center.
