Located in the heart of Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Herman & Kate Kaiser YMCA is a true gem. With its picturesque surroundings and wide range of recreational activities, it has earned the reputation of being "Tulsa's backyard." The YMCA offers an array of options to suit every fitness level and interest. From invigorating trail runs to structured exercise classes like yoga, pilates, and high-intensity interval training, there's something for everyone. If you prefer a more relaxed approach, you can try your hand at disc golf, a laid-back version of exercise that still gets you moving. For those who love the water, kayaking and canoeing are available to explore both the land and water, providing a refreshing and adventurous workout experience.
But it doesn't stop there. The YMCA also boasts stunning outdoor spaces that are perfect for hosting events, camps, and even weddings. One of the highlights is the shaded, tiered amphitheater space, which provides a unique and picturesque setting for any occasion. Thanks to the innovative design by Superior Shade's talented team, this space is now even more inviting.
Utilizing a combination of their Dugout Cantilever and Camelback Cantilever, Superior Shade's designers have created a custom, tilted shade structure that not only adds a touch of elegance but also provides ample shade to the tiered space below. The raised design of the structure allows it to cast a direct shadow on the intended area, ensuring maximum protection from the sun's rays. To further enhance comfort, optional fabric panels can be added between the columns, keeping guests cool and blocking any unwanted wind.
This impressive shade structure spans an impressive 86'-5" x 16'-4". Its Rubbed Bronze powder coat frame adds a touch of sophistication, while the Pearl Onyx traditional fabric complements the natural surroundings. The result is a visually stunning and functional addition to the already breathtaking outdoor space.
So whether you're looking to break a sweat, enjoy some time on the water, or celebrate a special occasion in style, the Herman & Kate Kaiser YMCA has it all. With its wide range of activities and beautiful outdoor spaces, it truly is a hidden oasis in the heart of Tulsa.
