At the end of the 2017 season Pool renovations will begin so watch for Renovation Updates.

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.

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 to members from our lifeguards and swim and dive team coaches.
