Salinas Aquatic Center


When the City of Salinas put out a request for proposals from qualified applicants to perform operation and management of the Salinas Aquatic Center earlier this summer, it only seemed fitting that the Central Coast YMCA put their name in the running. After all, like Steinbeck, the Central Coast YMCA’s roots in Salinas run deep. When Steinbeck was blowing out the candles on his 7th birthday cake, the YMCA was pioneering group swimming, and eight years before he would publish his very first novel, the Salinas Community YMCA opened its doors to the community in 1921.

For over 90 years the Central Coast YMCA has been providing quality services to the residents of Salinas and we’re excited for September when we will extend our quality programming to the Salinas Aquatics Center.

Schedule + programming information will be posted soon!
