The final $3.5 million phase three will be a new, two-story building with a teen technology center, community meeting rooms, group exercise studios, improved fitness and wellness center and a reception area. Once completed, the YMCA will be renamed the Ryan Family YMCA in honor of the family’s financial support. Peninsula YMCA officials said additional funds are still needed to complete phase three and that several project naming opportunities still exist. The Peninsula Family YMCA has served the communities of Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach and the Midway District since 1976. For more information, visit www.peninsula.ymca.org.
