We are thrilled to celebrate the Copley-Price Family YMCA today as it Breaks Ground at New City Heights Location. The Copley-Price Family YMCA will be a 53,000 square foot, LEED certified facility. It will feature two pools, gymnasium, pre-school and school-age child care centers, teen center, spacious fitness and wellness center, group exercise rooms, a demonstration kitchen and an outdoor soccer arena. The 3.7 acre parcel was donated by Robert Price, President of Price Charities, and aims to revitalize and connect the communities of Talmadge, Kensington and City Heights. The Copley-Price Family YMCA is the largest single-phase project in the 131-year history of the YMCA of San Diego County.
Executive Director, Leticia Leos and SVP, YMCA of San Diego County, Shelly McTighe-Rippengale were featured on the U-T's “Community Spotlight” show. Check it out:
