THE WOODLANDS, TX -- The YMCA located in the village of Creekside Park in The Woodlands closed this weekend, despite efforts by residents to keep the location open.

The Creeskide YMCA closed its doors Sunday. According to the YMCA, the location in Creekside Park closed its doors as an exercise facility on May 15.

While originally the facility was intended to remain open for several months out of the year for use as a camp facility, the Creekside Park Village Association now reports that the Y will close indefinitely after this year's summer camp.

Officials with the YMCA were unable to give a comment by press time.
