Reservations are currently required for use of all City of Burlington Aquatic facilities. Schedules subject to change.

See below for activity reservation information. No cost to reserve - pay upon entry. See entry fees below.
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.

MAC Maintenance Update

The MAC will be closed 5/15-5/23 to remove the panels and set up for our summer season.  We will move weekday operations to North Park Pool 5/17-5/21 with limited operations.  Please note these changes in Omnify when making reservations for 5/17-5/21. 

The weekends of 5/15 & 5/16 and 5/22 & 5/23 will operate under North Park Pool’s designated schedule.
