About Legacy Foundation Chris-Town YMCA

The Legacy Foundation Chris-Town YMCA was constructed in 1983 with a rich history of serving our community and surrounding communities with programs and activities that help further health and well-being.

The Legacy Foundation Chris-Town YMCA provides programs and services that promote our four Core Values: Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. These programs include: childcare, youth sports, swimming, camping, gymnastics, teen, family and senior adult programs, health and fitness, and volunteerism.

The Legacy Foundation Chris-Town YMCA is proud to partner with Mountain Park Community Health Center to offer an onsite pediatric medical and dental clinic. A WIC and financial eligibility specialist is available at the clinic to ensure affordability for those who lack insurance or are underinsured.

A grant from the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation provides support for preventive dental care education and outreach as well as financial assistance for children who may lack adequate coverage.

The clinic entrance is located on the north side of the YMCA building facing Solano Park. Clinic hours are Monday 8am-8pm and Tuesday through Friday 8am-5pm. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call (602) 243-7277. For more information about financial assistance for pediatric preventive dental care through the YMCA, call (602) 433-6333.

I thoroughly enjoy my visits to the ‘Y’ at Christown. I usually go six mornings a week. The staff is friendly and very encouraging to me before and after my workouts. Any questions I have are answered thoughtfully and quickly. The lifeguards have gone out of their way to help me. At the end of August I couldn’t swim one length of the pool doing a modified sidestroke. Now I swim between 26 and 37 laps, depending on time constraints. They tell me how good I am doing, offer suggestions regarding technique and one has loaned me a pair if goggles until I can get my own. As of ten days ago, Walmart didn’t have them in stock yet. The pool is clean and was kept warm all Winter. Group or class instructors have been patient and encouraging with me. I love this ‘Y’ location!
