The opening of the new Anderson Munger Family YMCA at Third St. and Oxford Ave. has been postponed from the originally scheduled date of April 12, but is expected to be a hub of community activity when it debuts on Sat., May 3.
The 30,000 square foot, two-story facility will provide meeting and recreational space for members and community residents alike on the first floor. A 25-yard heated pool, a warm water training pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and locker room are also on the ground floor.
Fitness options at the $23.5 million facility include free weights, strength and cardiovascular equipment, which are housed on the structure’s second floor. In addition will be rooms for spinning classes and group exercises as well as administrative offices. The rooftop features a walking track and basketball court; a parking structure will accommodate 160 vehicles.
Those who become a charter member by April 1 get unlimited access to the 23 YMCA locations throughout L.A. until the new facility opens. Other perks of purchasing a charter membership include a reduced joining fee of $49 (a $50 savings), free parking for up to three hours per visit, your name on a recognition plaque, access to the Anderson Munger YMCA before it opens to the public as well as admission to special events and receptions.
In addition to the joining fee, a family membership is $72 for two adults including children up to age 17 (or 23 if a student still living at home). Adults pay $47 per month; senior members 62 and older pay $40; young adults ages 18 to 22, $31.
