Burbank YMCA to unveil $1-million renovation Wednesday

The Burbank Community YMCA is slated to unveil next week its $1-million renovation, which includes upgrades to its aquatics center, pool and gym.

On Wednesday, the public can join the center in celebrating 90 years in Burbank, along with the renovations.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is slated to take place at 1:45 p.m. at the Y, which is located at 321 E. Magnolia Blvd. Two-time Olympic swimming gold medalist Cathy Ferguson, along with Burbank Mayor Emily Gabel-Luddy, will host the event.

The improvements were funded, in large part, by the Rose Hills Foundation and the Burbank HealthCare Foundation.
