Tri-Valley Y opens spacious facilities in Dublin

'It's a great day for the Y,' says Dublin Mayor Tim Sbranti

by Jeb Bing

Several hundred members and supporters of the Tri-Valley Y turned out last week to celebrate the organization's headquarters and main facilities relocation to larger quarters at 6693 Sierra Lane, Suite F, in Dublin.

The Y, which used to be located on First Street in Pleasanton, outgrew that space and took advantage of grants, increased donations and aid from Dublin to lease the former commercial office space.

Kelly O'Lague Dulka, executive director of the Tri-Valley Y, led tours at the opening Nov. 3 of the new facility, which has large assembly and athletic rooms as well as offices. With music, food and refreshments, crowds that included Dublin and regional representatives, stayed well into the evening.

"This is a great day for the Y and the city of Dublin," Mayor Tim Sbranti said. "We're happy to have the Y in our community."

Dulka said the expansion of the YMCA was made possible by a grant from the city of Dublin and residential home developer Jordan Ranch Properties. This expansion now allows for programs and services to take place at facilities in both Dublin and Pleasanton.

The new facility includes a Family Wellness Center with services ranging from recreational programs to mental health services to fitness and dance classes.

Dulka said the YMCA will continue to develop programs, classes and services to meet the needs of the Tri-Valley community.
