MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Georgette and Cato Johnson YMCA in Whitehaven is now open.

That comes after the old building in Whitehaven was demolished and months were spent constructing the new facility.

There is a wellness center, indoor and outdoor pools, and spaces for young children and teens.

“I came here for some aerobic classes some years ago. Also, my grandchildren learned to swim here at this Y,” said Jacquelyn Rosser, a Whitehaven resident.

People who live in the Whitehaven community say the YMCA has been a part of their lives for years and they’re excited about the reopening.

“I’m looking forward in the future to maybe coming up here for some classes. I asked if they had senior discounts, so after I retire this will be a place to come here, exercise, get in shape and all the other things they have to offer,” said Rosser.

The newly opened YMCA is located at 4727 Elvis Presley Boulevard.
