Maynard Aquatic Center

CoronaVirus Update

The City of Burlington, in concert with communities across North Carolina, is taking proactive steps to protect the health and wellbeing of our community and our City's workforce. Effective Wednesday March 18, 2020 the Maynard Aquatic Center will be closed until further notice. We will continue to evaluate and modify the closure schedule as necessary. 

About the MAC

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.

The MAC offers and hosts a wide variety of programs, from water aerobics and Masters swimming to swim lessons and swim teams. The facility is available to rent for both public and private parties.
