A Fox Cities YMCA broke ground Thursday on a $3.4 million renovation and expansion project.

The Fox West facility is one of four YMCA's in the Fox Cities that will see upgrades.

The renovation will include a full-court gym, a 6,000 square foot wellness center, upgraded equipment and an outdoor children's playground.

The renovations come as a way to better serve the ever-growing Fox Valley population.

"The need is our growing Y and our growing community. Over the past few years we've grown up to 5,000 thousand members," said Brenda Johnson, Executive Director of Fox West YMCA.

The Fox West renovation project is expected to be completed by June of next year.

There will be an event to kick off the whole project at the downtown Appleton YMCA on Monday.
