“Overpriced YMCA, But with a pool!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

They pretty much offer the same exercise and routine from any gym in Roanoke/Salem and offer a little more. There non Roanoke County Resident cost is extremely high. And even if you are a Resident you will pay much more than you would if you used the YMCA.

The biggest selling point for them is there little mini indoor/outdoor water park, But for a little more you could go to Emerald Point and have tons more to do.

“Fun for Families!”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

My family started visiting Green Ridge using day passes about a year ago, and finally decided to join. We love the variety of activities available there, and the wellness equipment is updated often and well maintained. In ther summer, Splash Valley Water Park is a good value and the best public pool in the area.

“Overcrowded”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

I was member of the Botetourt Athletic Club for a couple of years and decided to try Green Ridge since it was cheaper. I was a member for about two months before I decided to call it quits. It's very overcrowed. It's not worth the money i was saving when while I was there, I couldn't accomplish what I wanted. There's nothing wrong with their facilities, I guess I'm just spoiled by the BAC. I'd rather pay the extra money.
