Maytag Pool

Maytag Pool Summer 2013 007.jpgMaytag Pool can be found nestled in the center of historic Maytag Park, which is located at 301 S 11th Ave W. Since the pool was built in 1935, it has served as one of the main summertime family attractions in Newton.

The pool features zero-entry access, a chair lift, water fountains, two water slides, a diving well, and six 25 meter swimming lanes.

Pool Schedule 

Maytag Pool opens on May 29* and will close on August 19. These dates may change based on the last and first day of school for students at Newton Community School District. Daily entry fee is $5.00 and children 3 and under are free. Please note children 9 years old and younger must be supervised by a responsible person at least 15 years old.

*The cold and wet weather last week delayed the start of some needed pool painting work and we had to push back the filling of the pool. This also made us delay our required staff in-service training. We'll see you Sunday, May 29!
