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.
Team sporting events will also be available.
The YMCA closed its doors last summer along with the Penn Hills YMCA and Western Area YMCA.
The YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh filed for bankruptcy last year.
