The YMCA will be located along the Tower Terrace Road commercial corridor
which connects the northern part of the region. It will be situated with easy access to existing outdoor field space at Gill and Lowe Parks and positioned near the future geographical center of Marion.
A social services provider contributing many opportunities for at-risk kids to better themselves.
