YMCA deal to bring free fitness to Port Huron’s McMorran Plaza

Residents looking to do yoga or exercise outside on the redeveloped McMorran Plaza in Port Huron’s downtown will be able to take free classes under a deal between the city and YMCA.

The city is allocating $ 130,375 to finance wellness classes over the next three summer.

Based on a 14-week season from Memorial Day to Labor Day, there would be four classes per day six days a week through the YMCA of the Blue Water Area.

City Manager James Freed said they’re using a share of the city’s federal COVID stimulus funds through “significant language added for community wellness initiatives” in the American Rescue Plan.

But the partnership between city parks and recreation and the YMCA, he said, put the content experts in charge of what classes will be offered.
