We regret to inform our members and the community that our YMCA's new Family Pool Club @ Park Terrace in Plainville caught fire yesterday afternoon. The main clubhouse building experienced significant damage. No one was in the building at the time and we are thankful that no injuries were reported. We are grateful to the Plainville Fire Department who led the efforts, along with mutual aid from other local fire agencies, to suppress the fire.
The facility was under final renovations and preparations for its opening in June. We acquired the property earlier this year and significant construction and renovations were underway in anticipation of re-opening the facility for the summer season. The swim club is situated on 10.5 acres in a park-like setting at 5 Berry Street, Plainville.
As a local community centerpiece for family fun for decades, everyone at the Hockomock Area YMCA was excited and energized for the re-opening of this Plainville summer landmark.
We are deeply saddened by this fire and its devastation. We are fully supporting and cooperating with the Town of Plainville and the Plainville Fire Department as they conduct a fire investigation.
Our YMCA's hope and expectation is to rebuild. While we don't know the timeline and details at this very moment, we are dedicated and committed to this wonderful local recreational treasure. More information will be shared as it becomes available.
Thank you for your confidence in our YMCA – even in the face of adversity – to continue to deliver our mission to be here for our neighbors, serve our communities, and come back even stronger from this unfortunate incident.
