Groundbreaking for new YMCA in City Heights

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Ground was broken Tuesday at the site of the new Copley-Price Family YMCA in City Heights.

The 53,000-square-foot-facility will be built on the former Pearson Ford lot at the intersection of El Cajon Boulevard and Fairmount Avenue.

It will feature, among other things, two pools, a gym, exercise rooms and an outdoor soccer arena. There will also be a demonstration kitchen where families can learn about healthy eating habits.

"We're dealing with a very high obesity in our community here, so a lot of people want to target the health seekers to use our YMCA," Copley Family YMCA Executive Director Leticia Leos said.

Construction is expected to be complete late next year.
