||The YMCA is a regional community center, serving seniors, adults, children, and schools. The YMCA is situated in a busy, visible location near the City of Alhambra Golf Course, Almansor Park and Almansor Court Banquet facility. The YMCA serves the cities of Alhambra, Monterey Park, Rosemead and San Gabriel. In addition to traditional swim and exercise programs, the YMCA provides after-school, summer school, child care, youth leadership and development, tutoring and family support programs. The project featured removal of a significant amount of turf and water-intensive plants, installation of water-efficient irrigation, showers, sinks and toilets, and planting of water-wise California Natives and succulents. Hardscapes including mulch, rocks and benches/furniture were also installed in place of water-intensive vegetation.
