El Estero Park Center

Overlooking Lake El Estero, the El Estero Park Center - formerly named the Monterey Youth Center - is located at the entryway to the famous Dennis the Menace Playground.
In addition to our Preschool, Youth and Teen programs, we provide a variety of activities for all ages. We also offer numerous dance classes for the whole family next door at the El Estero Park Center Dance Studio. Please view current programs in our SmartRec store.

El Estero Park Center features a meeting/multi-purpose rooms, a complete kitchen, a Preschool and a Dance Studio. Nestled between the lake, the Center and Dennis the Menace Playground is a group BBQ area available for reservations.
