Bayside Family YMCA 70 West St, Barrington, RI02806 This local Y is truly one of Barrington's great resources, as it more than lives up to the organization's commitment to…More family and community. With programs for young and old – including its youth swim team, the Bayside Stingrays – there's always something to do at the Y. It's especially great for moms and dads, who can use the Y's Prime Time and babysitting while they work out or take a yoga class. One nice plus: an outdoor swimming pool is open during the summer. And as part of YMCA of Greater Providence, members have full access to Ys in Rhode Island and Massachuestts.
