NEW CANAAN — After two years of construction, and several more of dreaming, the New Canaan YMCA held its Grand Opening Celebration Sunday afternoon.

“It’s a very exciting day for our Y,” said Kristina Barrett, VP financial development, marketing and strategic initiatives. “It’s been two years of construction, but really five years of planning.”

Sparkling new facilities and features were celebrated for visitors with a range of activities hosted throughout the building, as well as a ribbon-cutting ceremony in front.
