HUMBOLDT PARK — The McCormick YMCA at the western end of the 606 has kicked off a $9.4 million expansion that will add amenities for its members such as two indoor swimming pools — and for users of the park system’s elevated Bloomingdale Trail, long-desired public bathrooms.

The bathrooms are expected to open in fall of 2018 in conjunction with the expansion, officials said.
