Outdoor Center Swim | Metrowest YMCA | MetroWest YMCA

The Outdoor pool is now closed for the 2023 Summer season. We generally open the pool in early to mid-June through the end of August.

The Outdoor Center in Hopkinton has an outdoor pool used by campers during summer camp, and by members and the community in the evenings and weekends during the summer. Swim lessons and a competitive swim team are also available. Join the Outdoor Center as a member for your best value in visiting the pool or joining swim lessons or the swim team. Community members and guest are also welcome to the pool for a $10 fee. They can also participate in swim lessons or swim team for a non-member rate.

Swim lesson and swim team information and registration will become available in late May/early June. However information listed below from 2023 will generally provide you with the outline of what we offer for the summer.



The 122-acre Outdoor Center in Hopkinton is home to our award-winning summer camp, but it also offers an outdoor swimming pool to members on evenings and weekends.


Hours of operation: early-mid June through end of August

Monday - Friday 4-7pm

Saturday - Sunday 11am-7pm


Who has access?

The pool is open to the community, with current Hopkinton Outdoor Center members and all full-access Framingham Branch members (not Youth or Teen) receiving free access and community members able to purchase day passes at $10/person up to $25/family.
