Photos: Wade Walker Park YMCA "First Look"

Hundreds attended the "first look" at the new YMCA at Wade Walker Park.

Patch was there to capture the excitement of the day as the much-anticipated Wade Walker Park Family YMCA welcomed its first big crowd of visitors during a "first look" event Saturday afternoon.

"This is about young people," said CEO Burrell Ellis. "This is about building the foundation."

The water was cool at the facility's outdoor pool (the indoor pool was not open) where adults and kids enjoyed some splash time.

The Y's executive director, Winston Myers, told Patch the facility is slated to open around the August 16 timeframe.
