A ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 20, 2014 marked the completion of Phase I renovations and the official opening of the newly expanded J.E.R. Chilton YMCA at Rockwall. Guests were treated to tours of the facility, which showcased the nearly 12,000 sq. ft. addition. This includes a 6,000 sq. ft. aerobics and free-weights workout area; state-of-the-art equipment, including several new treadmills, ellipticals and step mills; spacious locker rooms and showers; and a lavish Member Services desk. A new child watch area was also added.

Phase II renovations were completed in March 2015 and gave a fresh look to the existing gym and aerobics room, as well as a brand new cycling studio and multipurpose room for Board meetings, community functions and senior luncheons. As a special added touch, the photographic works of J.E.R. "Bob" Chilton, the Rockwall Y's namesake, grace the walls of the facility, highlighting the milestones along the way.
