About, Staff & Job Opportunities.



The Wayland Community Pool, Inc. is a non-profit that was funded by generous donations from local businesses and individuals. The facility is located at 258 Old Connecticut Path, Wayland, MA. 01778. The air supported structure is removed for the summer months to provide open air swimming and is replaced in the fall to provide year-round use. The pool has ten lanes, two 1-meter diving boards and ranges in depth from four to twelve feet. We provide a wide variety of aquatic programming for all ages and levels available to residents and non-residents of the Town of Wayland.


Wayland has a long history of privately funded community pools. Our current pool sits on the site of the original Town Pool that was funded by generous donations and opened in the late 1960s. The pool had outlived its useful life (it was a 5 lane 25 yard indoor facility) and a group was formed in 2004 to plan for its replacement. These plans came to reality when the new community pool was opened in November 2010. The pool was funded by generous donations from local businesses and individuals as well as a loan from Middlesex Savings Bank. This loan is still outstanding and we are working hard to get it paid off. If you would like to make a donation to the pool we would very much appreciate it.


The Wayland Community Pool was built through generous donations from members of the community. While usage of the pool has suspended due to the Coronavirus the staff and pool are continuing to operate and maintain the pool. We have had no revenue since early March and our expenses have continued. We are in need of donations pay these expenses and help retire our loan. To donate on line click the donate button
