Late Summer Affiliate Members enjoy full use of the pool beginning now and extending until the end of our swim season on September 18. The 2016 fee for Late Summer Affiliate members is $300 for the first member in a household and $80 for each additional swimmer over 2 years old (including babysitters and nannies). […]

Join the wait list for future seasons now.

There is a non-refundable fee of $25 to apply for a Full Summer Affiliate membership. We typically have 30-40 Affiliate Memberships available each summer so the full season is not assured for 2017 due to the length of the wait list.

A community pool in the Bannockburn neighborhood of Bethesda, Maryland, Merrimack has been keeping members cool for 50 years.

In 2005, Merrimack was completely rebuilt. Today, we have a 7-lane competition pool and a large diving well with dual 1-meter boards. We also offer a wonderful kiddie pool area with a beach entry, bubblers, and a “lemon drop” fountain sprayer. A transition pool area is perfect for kids just learning to swim. We have picnic areas, ping-pong, free wi-fi, BBQ grills, plenty of parking, and a large bathhouse that was renovated just a few years ago.

Merrimack offers competitive swim and dive teams, with meets against other area pools from mid-June through the beginning of August every year. Swimming and diving lessons are always available.
