OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City is set to break ground on a new senior health and wellness center on Wednesday morning. 

This will be the fourth health and wellness center built as part of the MAPS program. The facility will be 40,000 square feet. It will also include a fishing area. 

Two other centers have already been completed in Northwest and Southwest Oklahoma City. The third is under construction right now near Northeast 36tha and Lincoln. 

It will be operated by the YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City. 

"It has been very popular, with the centers we have open right now and we see no reason why that won't continue. They are so popular that the council included a fifth wellness center for MAPS 4," said David Todd, the MAPS Program Manager. 

Construction was supposed to start in June, but it was postponed because rain. 

Wednesday morning's groundbreaking will be at 10 o'clock, the wellness center is expected to be finished sometime next year.
