Brentwood Family YMCA Skatepark
The Brentwood Family YMCA Alex LeVasseur Memorial Skate Park is a recreational skate park that allows children the opportunity to exercise their talent with skaters from all over Nashville in a fun, encouraging environment. Throughout the year, our programs teach important character values while also helping skaters ages 5 and up grow their abilities.
Our skate park opens at school dismissal and runs until 7 p.m. First-time to intermediate-level skaters are welcome.
Helmets required at all times in the park. Ages 10 & under, helmet, knee pads and elbow pads required.
I only go there for basketball and for the most part its fine, but on one of the courts one basketball hoop has to stay lowered down at 7 feet (regulation size basketball hoop is at 10 feet) for kids. But, only about 1 in every 100 person coming there is a kid that plays there, and they only play for like 5 minutes. Plus, the staff is really strict about that rule. So sometimes that disappoints me.
Great facility and very nice staff.
This Y has such a large venue of wellness I think that is where is starts to decline, because the running/weights area is literally so smashed together I am kind of surprised with the weights that they are allowed to have a bench a foot away from the only water fountain, for example, in the main weights-running area. There is a pool inside and one outside and classes galore. I dunno, too much traffic, and at $63 a month I for one would like to be able to enter the mens locker room and change without gagging from smells, holding.my breath before I go in or the flat-out behaviors of the strange population who puts their legs up on sinks and benches to literally blow-dry their nether regions and walk to the toilets barefooted. Go watch for 5 minutes, if it takes that long, on any day and you will see. I have to change before I get there or change in the main restroom there because I refuse to go in the locaker room anymore. That whole mens locker room should be condemned. It is just nasty. Cannot warn enough about it. The staff is nice and seem to try to keep peoples behaviors of face-timing, texting and hanging out on equipement and talking on their phone while working out to a minimum. Probably not the place for me, but if you have a family, it is one stop for the whole family, which is who this Y, I think, works most with. I for one am looking for a place a lttle less trafficked, less stuff to pay for because I just want to run and do a few weights, and keeps things clean(er).
My family and I like this YMCA. We have one closer to us but we prefer to come to this one.
Really nice facility with nice people
