Maynard Aquatic Center

The Maynard Aquatic Center is a year-round facility, featuring a large 286,000 gallon, multi-purpose heated pool, complete with a large recreational area, competition lap lanes and a low diving board. A walk-in ramp provides easy pool access, and a Frog slide offers hours 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.

​important user tips, information and reminders 

  •  Our staff do not have early access to the reservation schedule! Please do not ask us to reserve a swim slot before the window opens, or when you are checking in, to reserve for the following day.  We cannot guarantee that we will be able to secure a spot. Though happy to assist those without internet access, we ask that you make your own reservations if possible.
  • Your swim reservation is for any lane within the activity type selected. Specific lanes within that activity are on a first come-first served basis and cannot be individually reserved.  Make your online selection based on your planned activity type (if a hybrid water walker/lap swimmer, you may choose either, but be aware that some lap lanes will be too deep for walking). Please do not ask others to move.
  • There are a certain number of click-throughs required to make a reservation. You will see "Booking Confirmed" once you complete all the steps. You can double-check by clicking on to your profile (upper right-hand corner of the website) and looking at "My Schedule". You should also receive a confirmation email.  
  • The locker rooms are open and available for changing and toilet access (no showers or lockers). We ask that you clear the facility within 5 minutes of your session's end. 
  • No refunds for weather related closures. Consider cancelling if severe weather likely.
We will continue to monitor facility use and consider schedule adjustments as needed. We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we do our best to safely navigate the Covid-19 challenges ahead.
