Description

Moving ME Forward is a local 501(c)(3) organization whose vision is to be a cultivator of social change in the area of health and fitness within our Maine communities. 

To facilitate achieving this vision, Moving ME Forward has partnered with Bates College to provide community access to the Merrill Indoor Gymnasium! We believe that this unparalleled access will allow community members to continue to safely work on their health and fitness goals throughout the fall, winter and early spring months.

The Merrill Indoor Gymnasium houses a 200-meter, six-lane Mondo Super-X track and four tennis courts, all newly resurfaced in 2008. The building also houses the eight-lane, 25-meter-long Tarbell Pool, with one- and three-meter diving boards.
