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 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.


Maynard Aquatic Center offers new swim opportunities beginning April 10. Reservations continue  to be required (see beow for link to reserve). No cost to reserve - pay upon entry (see fee schedule at bottom of page).
