The Herbert C. Young Community Center is located in downtown Cary and has been offering classes, programs and athletic events for over 20 years. Two large meetings rooms and a catering kitchen are on the main level, and the lower gymnasium, named after former North Carolina State University women's basketball coach Kay Yow, is often converted to an event hall for festivals, performances or large events.

For Sun. through Thurs., Cary residents may reserve the center three months in advance and non-residents may reserve the center two months in advance until 10pm. All rentals are for a two-hour minimum.
