The Maynard Aquatic Center (MAC) is a year-round facility featuring a large heated pool with both recreational and competition areas and a diving board. 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.
