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 Park.

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 click on the Activities Guide link below to view a list of current activities.
