Maynard Aquatic Center

Maynard Aquatic Center will close for repairs and renovation on September 10 

 Maynard Aquatic Center (the MAC) is due for some major repairs and ADA upgrades. The facility will close on September 10 so that phase one of those repairs and upgrades can begin. The MAC has provided the community with swim lessons, exercise classes, and lap swims since it opened in 1996. 

Current MAC memberships will be extended for an amount of time equal to the length of the closure. Members may also use the Alamance County Community YMCA for lap swimming free of charge during this period.

 In phase one of the construction, the pool shell will be repaired and replastered, new stainless-steel grates will be installed around the pool, depth markers will be upgraded, and PebbleTec will be installed on the entry ramp to make it less slippery. The pump room will be remodeled and upgraded with a new filter, a new chemical controller, a new water level controller, and a new digital flow meter. 

The closure for phase one is expected to be approximately three months, though with ongoing delays common in the construction industry these days, it may take longer. The City will provide updates should there be significant delays. 

In phase two of construction, the pool enclosure will be replaced, and several upgrades will be made for ADA compliance. The pool enclosure (the fabric cover that allows for year-round use) is nearing the expecting end of life and there are also some potential structural issues with the enclosure frame that will be fully evaluated during phase one of construction. The renovations for ADA compliance include renovating the administrative counter to meet height requirements and adjusting locker room benches. 

The timing for phase two of the repair and upgrades has not yet been determined and will be informed by evaluations made during phase one of construction.

The Maynard Aquatic Center (MAC) is a year-round facility featuring a large heated pool with both recreational and competition areas. A walk-in ramp provides easy access and a frog slide offers lots of kiddie fun. During the summer season, the side panels enclosing the pool area are removed, and the pool converts to an outdoor facility with a roof to shield swimmers from the sun.
