The Oak Square YMCA is largest YMCA in the City of Boston.  We serve over 11,000 adults and children from Boston, Watertown, Brookline, and Newton community each year.  Our facility was designed with a focus on serving people with disabilities and ensuring that all of our amenities (pools, fitness centers, locker rooms, etc.) exceed the standards set forth by the American Disability Act.

Our YMCA offers a variety of programs which aid in recovery and rehabilitation including Aqua Arthritis and Gentle Yoga, our medically-based cancer survivorship program, LiveSTRONG at the YMCA, and our signature adaptive wellness initiative, the Partnership Program, that serves individuals who need specialized, adaptive exercise equipment and/or one-on-one assistance to exercise.

In 2015, the Oak Square YMCA awarded over $350,000 of financial assistance to allow families and adult in need to receive subsidized membership to our universally-accessible building and participate in our live-changing healthy living and youth development programs. Our Iron Tony Indoor Ironman event raises funds to support subsidized YMCA memberships for individuals with disabilities, adults recovering from cancer treatment, and adaptive wellness programming.
