The La Jolla YMCA Friday will celebrate the beginning of a $15.5 million renovation and expansion project at its facilities.

The project was funded, in part, with a $5 million donation from philanthropist Dan McKinney, who died last month at the age of 96.

Construction actually began last week and is expected to last around two years. The new facility will be named after McKinney, according to the YMCA.

The additions will include an aquatics center, a wellness center with sweeping ocean views, multi-use space, and child care facilities, among other things.

The La Jolla YMCA serves more than 18,000 people from La Jolla, University City, Sorrento Valley, Carmel Valley and the northern parts of Clairemont and Pacific Beach.
