ZACHARY, LA (NBC33) — The Capital Area YMCA is expanding.
It has opened its ninth location - this time in Zachary, and apparently, it's been a long time coming.
The Y had been working to get a facility there for 30 years. CEO Bob Jacobs said now the YMCA and all its programs are more accessible for people not only in Zachary, but the Felicianas as well.
“I think that the Y is a place that builds character, builds family, and builds healthy lifestyles,” stated Jacobs. “It arms people with programs of interest to them, and it develops our youth."
The facility features a fitness center, tennis courts, and computer labs.
