Mack Indoor Pool is the City of Ann Arbor's only indoor public pool and offers a variety of programs and opportunities for every swimmer. Our six-lane, 25-yard main pool has an attached 30-by 42-foot children's tot pool. A ramp leading into the pool provides for easy accessibility. Our heated indoor pool allows you to swim, even if the weather is not “summer like."  To sign up for any of our programs listed below, please use the online ​re​gis​​tration system. ​

Parks and Recreation is doing our best to offer opportunities to the community, while making our facilities as safe as possible.  We know the pandemic has added significant stress on everyone. Please be kind and respectful to our staff and other visitors.

COVID-19 procedures

Our locker rooms will be open for changing and bathroom use only. Showers and other grooming after your swim will not be permitted at this time.  While in the locker rooms, the City of Ann Arbor’s mask mandate requires all guests, vaccinated and un-vaccinated, to wear a mask indoors when not in the pool. Please also make sure to social distance from other guests.  The city will place visual cues to allow for physical distancing in locker rooms and we ask for you to utilize these cues when changing.  If a designated space is not available due to the number of occupants, please wait for a spot to open up. We do ask that all guests still exit our facility through the pool deck and be thoughtful regarding your interactions with other guests.

We are still encouraging swimmers to arrive at the pool dressed and ready to swim. This will decrease the number of people in the locker rooms and cut back on overlap between our programs. We will also be offering changing stations on the pool deck for those who are not comfortable sharing a space with others while changing.

Finally, due to Ann Arbor Open School use of the pool, the locker room will be closed to the public at 9:30 am weekdays.  We will need all guests out of the locker rooms and leaving the pool deck at 9:30 a.m. Please plan accordingly.​

At this time, only swimming guests will be welcomed into the pool area and locker rooms.

Lap swimmers are asked to circle swim while at the pool and strongly encouraged not to rest next to other swimmers. Please note that swimmers will not be permitted to refuse to share a lane with other lap swimmers. In general swim areas, swimmers should remain six feet apart from swimmers
outside your household.

The City of ​Ann Arbor Masters ​Swim ​Team

Ann Arbor Masters Swimming is a year-round program at Mack Pool from September-May and at Fuller Park Pool, during the summer time. Our master's program offers adult swimmers at all levels an opportunity to attend coached workouts, stroke feedback and help in preparing to compete if that is your goal. We offer 12 practices times throughout the week. We break our Mack season into three 11-week sessions and fees are based on the number of swims you would like to attend in that 11-week session.
