The Alpine Community Center is a beautiful facility nestled in the scenic foothills of the Cuyamaca Mountains. Enjoy our quiet rural setting and peaceful atmosphere. Breathe the crisp, clean Alpine mountain air and experience the most perfect weather in the world.

The Alpine Community Center is a co-anchor with the Alpine branch of the County libraries and the Veterans Wall of Honor. It provides over 8,000 sq. ft. of Community meeting space, a certified kitchen, a playground and park, lighted ballfield, tennis court, and a stage.

In 1950, the 7.5-acre site was donated to the Alpine Community Center primarily for the benefit of the youth of Alpine. In 1999, the current building was built with a loan from the USDA and support from the community through donations. The center, a non-profit corporation, is not supported by any county or federal taxes, its survival relies solely on the generosity of the community.

More of Our History

In May of 1950, thirty-eight (38) community members formed the Alpine Youth Center, a non-profit corporation for the purpose of constructing and maintaining a youth center to be operated primarily for the benefit of the youth living in, about, and around the town of Alpine. Over the years the name changed to the Alpine Community Center Inc. But its main purpose has remained the same, serving the youth of Alpine.

In November 1950, the Alpine Youth Center was deeded 7.5 acres on Alpine Blvd., its current location. The years that followed saw the construction of a youth center, which was build from fragmented donated buildings put together by volunteers. Those original bulidings are now occupied by the Julian Charter School building. ACC also saw volunteers construct the lighted ball field, tennis court and a community park. In 1999, the new community center building was constructed with a loan from the USDA and this building has been the site of many community events including weddings, memorials, meetings, senior events and youth events. ACC has also been there to support the community during times of disaster, as was the case during the 2003 Cedar Fire when ACC became the center point in supporting those affected by the fire and providing hot meals to first responders. 

Over the years the ACC has provided many services to the community of Alpine:
