WILMERDING (KDKA) — When several YMCA branches shut down throughout the area last year, it left a void for the communities they called home.

But now, there’s a new beginning for one of those facilities.

The branch in Wilmerding reopened Tuesday at 6 a.m. as a community center, and it didn’t take long for people try it out.

The new community center features a workout room, weight room, gymnasium, pool and more.

The center’s website says its mission is to provide recreational programs and physical outlets for youth, families, adults and senior citizens.
