The YMCA, Changing Lives for the Better

Family Fun Center

 Dahl Family YMCA (La Crosse)

Fees: Free- YMCA membership required 

The Family Fun Center is a place where families can enjoy playing and growing together. We have a place for each age group to play, grow, and thrive. The Family Fun Center features an "open" space for children to use their imagination and create their own fun with mats and soft play shapes.  For older children the tubes, slides, and climbing wall create an interactive play environment while the toddler area creates a fun, stimulating environment that is age-appropriate and gives the children an opportunity to explore.


All children under 7 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
